Delhi govt to follow court orders on odd-even exemptions

Delhi Smog

The Delhi government on Wednesday assured the National Green Tribunal (NGT) that it will bring the next Odd-Even traffic rationing scheme as per the tribunal's direction that includes "no exemptions". Also, NGT had given the 48 hours time to Delhi government to submit its report against the Delhi air pollution action plan.

In its anti-pollution action plan, the government has also pledged to stop constructions once pollution levels touch "severe" category and ban the entry of trucks to Delhi.

Although the dates of the implementation of the odd-even scheme have not been specified as of now, sources in the Delhi government told Catch that the scheme is likely to take place before the end of year.

NGT had objected to various provisions in the scheme exempting women, two-wheelers, VVIPs and children carriers.The government had cancelled the plan to implement the odd-even formula in November when Delhi was enveloped in choking haze, saying that they "cannot compromise on women safety".

A Bench headed by NGT chairperson Swatanter Kumar said that the expenses will be borne by the authorities in a 70:30 ratio.

Chaning its stand on the odd-even policy, the government in its action plan does not mention any exemption for women.

The government also plans to run more buses to provide a hassle-free experience for commuters and Delhi Metro will increase the frequency and number of carriages during this period. Sri Lankan players wore masks as the air quality dipped, while some even vomited on field because of the pollution. Therefore, NGT again pulled Delhi government and asked to submit action plan in two days.
