Delhi: In response to the Aam Aadmi Party governments' decision to restrict the use of BS-III petrol and BS-IV diesel cars due to growing pollution levels in Delhi and Punjab, a transporters' organisation said on Monday that it will stage large-scale protests against both governments.
Up to December 9, the transport department has decided to prohibit BS III gasoline and BS IV diesel vehicles, the majority of which are cars. 5 lakh automobiles will be impacted. There will be a 20,000 rupee punishment for breaking the restrictions. On Monday, the city's air quality dropped from "severe" to "extremely poor." On Sunday, the city's AQI was 407; on Monday, it was 347. According to PTI, a truckers' organisation said on Monday that it would stage large-scale protests against the Aam Aadmi Party administrations in Delhi and Punjab over their decision to outlaw the use of BS-III petrol and BS-IV diesel cars due to the worsening pollution situation.
After a meeting on Monday, the Delhi Taxi and Tourist Transporters Association resolved to conduct traffic jams to protest the Delhi and Punjab governments.
In other developments, on Tuesday, the new Rajkumari Amrita Kaur (RAK) Outpatient Department (OPD) will begin testing the e-hospital server at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in Delhi (AIIMS). Officials claim that on Monday, test runs were carried out at the old OPD, and some registrations were made using the servers.
The new OPD in charge in RAK Dr. Vikas said that during the past few days, some of the deleted data had been recovered. Long lines of patients and attendants waiting to collect their lab results were observed at the lab report facility at New RAK OPD as physicians and patients at the institute continued to struggle to obtain their findings.
