    Diesel buses cannot enter within 90 Kms of Delhi


    Diesel BusThe RTI applicant filed an RTI to obtain information of how many illegal diesel buses are stopped and action taken against them by Transport Deptt, GNCTD, Delhi. Transport Department replied with a general order stating that the Enforcement Branch is taking action against the buses as and when violation of the rules is done by the private buses. But the Central Information Commission while hearing the second appeal observed that this is a general order, not the specific reply to the RTI applicant complaint about which the applicant has sought information.


    According to RTI Applicant Mr. Kuldeep Singh the diesel buses cannot enter within 90 Kms of Delhi, but still they are plying in Delhi. According to him there are no authority stopping them and the case of Nirbhaya is one such example.
