A controversial request entailing issuance of license plates for thousands of carburetor-equipped motorcycles was declined by the Cabinet, Department of Environment deputy Masoud Tajrishi announced on Wednesday.
A short while back, ministers of interior and industries signed a joint petition asking the Cabinet to permit issuance of license plates for roughly 10,000 units of carburetor-equipped bikes, a request that has stirred up the anger and disapproval of many DOE and health officials ever since.
The two ministers putting forth the proposal claimed that it was aimed to curb “losses inflicted on makers” due to the ban “imposed” on the production of the two-wheelers.
In a June 17 meeting among executive bodies, the request failed to obtain as many favorable votes as needed, rendering the case dismissed once and for all, reported ISNA.
