The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Wednesday sought a report on emissions from diesel locomotives and a comparative chart with regard to international standards.

The tribunal, which was hearing a petition filed by Dwarka resident S.K. Goyal about harmful emissions from diesel locomotives, has directed the Ministry of Railways to hold a meeting with the secretaries of IIT-Delhi, the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and the Ministry of Petroleum to set emission standards and ensure that railway locomotives do not pollute.
