New Delhi: The Supreme Court will hear a plea on Tuesday by automobile manufacturers seeking modification of its order prohibiting the sale and registration of diesel vehicles with an engine capacity of 2000 cc and above.

An apex court bench headed by Chief Justice T. S. Thakur on Monday said the matter would be heard on Tuesday after senior counsel Abhishek Manu Singhvi, Kapil Sibal and Gopal Subramaniam appearing for the automobile manufacturers Mahindra & Mahindra, Mercedes and Toyota sought modification of its December 16, 2015 order prohibiting the sale and registration of diesel vehicles above a 2000 cc engine capacity.

The court has imposed the ban in the wake of alarming air pollution during the winter season.
