In a latest incident, a prominent vlogger receives a challan of Rs 30,500 on his Toyota Fortuner in Delhi NCR. We all must’ve seen the news that the Delhi government had banned BS4 diesel and BS3 petrol cars recently. It was due to the toxic pollution the city was reeling under. This was particularly concerning during the Diwali season. At the time, the fine for using a BS4 diesel or BS3 petrol was Rs 20,000. The aim was to curb pollution from the exhaust emissions of cars. That is what transpired with this vlogger too. Let us acquaint ourselves with the details.

Vlogger Gets Challan of Rs 30,500 on Toyota Fortuner
This video comes from Daksh Ahlawat on YouTube. He narrates the entire tale. He mentions that he has the 2017 Toyota Fortuner 4×2 model (BS4 diesel). Since he has a large family, he often uses the 7-seat SUV to travel around. In addition to that, he also possesses a VW Virtus GT (BS6). During the time when this ban was in place in Delhi, he had to travel to the Delhi Airport to pick up his brother, who was arriving from the US. So he went to Delhi from Rohtak, Haryana. However, he was stopped by the Delhi Police.
On asking about what the issue was, he came to know that the Police had slapped a fine of Rs 30,500 on his Toyota Fortuner. Out of this amount, Rs 20,000 was fine for driving the BS4 car in Delhi, Rs 10,000 was for driving the car without the pollution certificate and Rs 500 was for the fact that he failed to produce the relevant documents for checking on the spot. Now, the vlogger claims that he accepts that he was travelling without the pollution certificate and is ready to pay that part. But the fact that he can’t drive a 6-year-old car in Delhi is unfair. He feels that there is a lot of pollution due to the industries and big companies as well. In fact, he even mentions that the vehicles used by the Police authorities are also non-compliant with the emission norms.
Now I understand the frustration a lot of people are facing due to these regulations. I am also aware of the extreme pollution conditions in Delhi NCR during this time of year due to the farmers burning the stubble from the crops in the adjoining areas and other reasons. Add to that the smoke from all the firecrackers. The government had to implement stringent protocols to deal with the situation. Thankfully, this was a temporary ban. Going forward, the government could introduce an odd-even rule to promote the use of public transport. We can only think of all this as our contribution to the menacing issue of pollution.
