Order of Lahore High Court regarding bike scheme

Let me tell you that the Lahore High Court has made the motorcycle scheme of the Punjab government subject to the NOC of the Environment Department. The court has stopped the Punjab government from distributing motorcycles without the approval of the Environment Department.  In this regard, Justice Shahid Karim has issued a five-page decision from the previous hearing. Remember, under this scheme, it is proposed to provide 20,000 motorcycles to the students.

Going forward, if I tell you more about this, the court said that by adding a large number of motorcycles, there will be concerns about negative effects on the environment. Therefore, it is important for the Punjab government to obtain approval from the environment department before implementing the motorcycle scheme and keep the scheme pending until the approval is received.
