Indian Express, July 30, 2011

Irked over non-filing of a response with regard to the steps taken for the launch of eco cabs, the Punjab and Haryana High Court on Friday directed the director of Haryana urban bodies department to be present before the court on the next date of hearing.

A division bench comprising Justices Surya Kant and Ajay Tewari observed that the state’s response was not too serious towards the issue. The directions were passed during the resumed hearing of a PIL arising out of a suo motu notice taken by the high court on a news item published in The Indian Express.

The court held that on March 25, the bench had asked the government to get in touch with Navdeep Aseeja — running a Graduate Welfare Association in Fazilka — to take his views into consideration on the issue of introducing eco rickshaws.
