SC to hear PIL on vehicle ban

The Supreme Court is likely to hear the PIL advocating ban on sale and registration of cars weighing below 1500 kg. The Gauhati High Court which imposed a temporary ban on the basis of the PIL last month recently is believed to have transferred the plea to the apex court which will start hearing this month itself. 

Moved by a Guwahati-based lawyer, the petition created no less flutter in the country’s automobile sector much to a major disappointment of Maruti Alto and Hyundai.

The High Court transferred the PIL after it received an application for the road transport ministry with the request where the ministry was itself one of the parties.
