Big Story Big Debate: Delhi Tops The List Of World's Most Air Polluted Cities

A hearing on air pollution in Delhi led to an unusual admission in the Supreme Court on Monday by Chief Justice of India H L Dattu — his grandson “looks like a ninja” because of the mask he’s forced to wear. The Supreme Court has asked for a “quick positive response” from the Centre and Delhi government on the possibility of a pollution tax on commercial vehicles passing through the Capital, which has the dirtiest air in the world. The Union government, during the hearing, indicated it was not averse to a levy of Rs 600 being imposed on light vehicles and Rs 1,200 on heavy vehicles.
