Only CNG and electric vehicles carrying non-essential commodities from other states can roll into Delhi from today. However, the entry of all petrol and diesel-run vehicles engaged in transporting non-essential items is still banned in order to improve the quality of air in the city.

The Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government, following orders from the Commission for Air Quality Management (CAQM), had issued a number of directions, including a ban on the entry of trucks except those transporting essential items, and closure of schools, colleges and other educational institutions and ban on construction work, to arrest air pollution in the city.

As a part of its phase-wise lifting of air pollution-induced curbs, the government has allowed the entry of CNG and electric trucks into the city from today (November 27), and all petrol and diesel transport vehicles will remain banned until December 3, according to Delhi Environment Minister Gopal Rai.
