Hearing a PIL, the Calcutta High Court on Monday inquired about the figures of public transport which were 15 years old, banned by the transport department.
The division bench headed by Chief Justice Arun Mishra also asked the state to give details about the figures of autos which have been converted to green autos and how many illegal autos were plying in the city. The bench asked the state to file affidavits regarding the issue. The case will come up for hearing on February 22.
In July 2008, the high court had ordered removal of pubic vehicles which were 15 years old from plying in the Kolkata Metropolitan areas to curb the pollution caused by auto emission.
