The Delhi High Court has ordered the release of overage vehicles seized by the authorities on an undertaking by the owners to either permanently park them in private spaces or take them outside city limits.
As per the High Court order, owners must file an undertaking that the vehicles would not ply within city limits or be parked in public spaces. They would also have to provide evidence of the private parking space, either owned or leased. The court also asked the Delhi government to frame a policy to deal with vehicles whose owners were willing to give the undertaking.
Earlier, several petitioners had moved the Delhi High Court challenging the seizure of cars for violating a National Green Tribunal order barring the use of petrol vehicles over 15 years of age and diesel vehicles that were 10 years or older.
One of the petitioners said that her vehicle was of “deep sentimental value” to her. She had purchased the car in the year 2000 and planned to convert it into an electric vehicle.
