The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking one person, one car, besides a demand to levy an environment tax on every second vehicle purchased by buyers. The court said that it could not interfere in a private matter.
A bench headed by Chief Justice of India Dhananjay Y Chandrachud said, “We cannot issue such directions.” One person and one car cannot be allowed. The court declined to issue any order relating to the environmental tax or commission for air pollution on the second car. The court said this is a private matter between the government and the citizens.

Justice PS Narasimha also joined this bench. He said, “We cannot enter every area. As far as the government is concerned, we are sitting here to resolve the issues of law. Your petition is good but we cannot enter into the issue related to environmental policy.” ” The petitioner replied: “Look how many cars have been sold in India in 2021, more than 30 lakh cars have been sold and this number is increasing day by day.”
