Will bring Odd-Even without exemptions: Delhi govt to NGT

Delhi government on Wednesday agreed to implement the odd-even scheme without any exemptions after the National Green Tribunal's rap last month.

The state government, in its action plan, also told the NGT that entry of truck in Delhi will be banned, adding that the industries causing pollution will be shut down.

"We will implement the Odd-Even scheme next time as directed by the tribunal, which is no exemptions", Delhi government counsel Tarunvir Singh Khehar said. However, later the city government demanded that the Odd-Even scheme shall come in entire NCR region and not just Delhi.

The Delhi government was forced to withdraw its appeal for modifications in the odd-even scheme that they made before the tribunal.

Only, as Business Insider points out, there hasn't been a marked decrease in broadband investment since these rules were implemented.

Raising objection on NGT's directive of disapproving exemption, the Delhi government had then cancelled the plan to plan to implement the scheme, asserting that it will not compromise on women's safety. The NGT had however disapproved the exemptions given by the government.

Government in the action plan filed in front of the NGT said that all construction work will be completely stopped if the air pollution level touches "severe" category. It said on Monday, "The government only talks about challans (prosecution slips). but nothing is reflected on the ground".

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. Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had last month pushed for bringing back the odd-even scheme after the capital was engulfed in thick smog for several days in a row.
