Supreme Court impose Rs. 700, Rs. 13000 'Environment Compensation Charge' (ECC) on commercial vehicles entering Delhi

Supreme Court on Monday imposed an 'Environment Compensation Charge' (ECC) on commercial vehicles entering Delhi, in addition to the toll tax, from November 1 for four months on a trial basis, in a bid to check high pollution levels in the city.
The charges would be payable at the rates of Rs 700 for light duty vehicles and two-axle vehicles and Rs 1,300 for three-axle and above. The apex court directed the Delhi Government to issue appropriate notification in this regard as it made clear that these charges would be operative for four months from November 1 till February 29, 2016 on an "experimental basis".
