Black deaths

Green concerns in the face of growing pollution are welcome. A bench comprising Justices AK Patnaik, SS Nijjar and FMI Kalifulla sought a reply from the center, Delhi, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan, asking why there is a direct link between the death of 3,000 children annually in the national capital and increased pollution levels due to diesel cars. It was based on a report of the Environment Pollution Authority and tabled by senior advocate Harish Salve. The bench suggested a 30 percent surcharge on the cost of diesel cars, high registration fee for personal cars and a comparative reduction in bus registration fee to improve air quality in Delhi.
