HPCL on Monday moved the Supreme Court challenging the Gujarat high court's verdict that asked all cars registered in the state to switch to gas in a year. A bench headed by Justice HL Dattu tagged the petition with the central government's plea on the same issue.
The HC had last year in July directed the state government to pass necessary laws to make it compulsory for all four-wheelers registered in Gujarat to convert to natural gas within one year.
Further, the court had given two-months time to the state government to issue necessary orders to impose stringent restrictions to reduce pollution by fixing levels of emission to the minimum, at par with international norms. The order applies to both public and private vehicles running on petrol and diesel. It had also directed the Central government to allocate natural gas for domestic and vehicular use to the city of Ahmedabad usage at the same rate as it is supplied to Delhi and Mumbai.
