No Exemptions During Odd-Even, Delhi Government Tells NGT

Odd-Even rule to be implemented without exemptions in Delhi

Odd-Even rule to be implemented without exemptions in Delhi

An action plan submitted before the National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Wednesday by Delhi government listed 14 measures they would take when the air quality reached "severe plus" category.

The government of NCT Delhi is equally responsible and it has to provide adequate finances which would help in providing a clean environment.

The government has also said in its plan that construction will be stopped completely when air pollution level touches "severe" category, adding that the entry of trucks into the city will also be banned during the time.

Directing the city government not to implement the scheme unless it established that it was not counter-productive, the NGT asked it to give an undertaking that it will roll out odd -even only when particulate matter (PM) 2.5 was over 300.

The Delhi government then filed a review plea stating that it sought exemptions due to inadequate numbers of public buses.

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

However, on Monday, the green court lashed out at the Arvind Kejriwal-government for not filing a comprehensive action plan to curb pollution and slammed authorities for holding the India-Sri Lanka cricket match despite poor air quality. "The first line of the action plan should be that the air quality level in Delhi never be near the permissible standards". While the governments of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan had filed their action plans with the tribunal, the Delhi government had failed to do so.
