No odd-even without exemptions, says Delhi government

No odd-even without exemptions, says Delhi government

"In light of the two conditions by the NGT on 2-wheelers and women drivers, at the moment we are calling it off (the odd-even scheme)", Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot said.

Before refusing an exemption to the two-wheelers, the NGT asked the government about reasons behind exemptions and the impact of pollution emanating from two-wheelers. The Odd-Even plan was called off in view of order of NGT which withdrew all exemptions except on plying of emergency vehicles.

Stating that Delhi the government could not compromise on the safety of women, Gahlot added that the city government also did not have enough busses or alternatives for the public transport to accommodate over 60 lakh two-wheeler riders.

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) flayed the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) on Saturday for not maintaining its buses properly and running them without passengers for a major part of the day.

This decision has come as a result of rising air pollution in Delhi, and an attempt to reduce vehicular pollution in the city.

He also asked the government to clarify the logic behind allowing two-wheelers.

"Reports from DPCC (Delhi Pollution Control Committee) and CPCB (Central Pollution Control Board) showed there was no change in pollution level last time". They are a great nuisance. Why don't you take proper steps for their maintenance. "How surprising", the bench said. "You're only taking the decision after the tribunal directed you to", the NGT was quoted as saying by DNA. The tribunal said that even parents dropping their kids to school should not be implemented. PM2.5 and PM10 levels have also come down.

The CPCB's air quality index till 5 pm had a score of 403, against Friday's 468. 'Dust storm in Middle East also behind smog' A Centre-run pollution agency has identified a late October dust storm in the Middle East and stubble-burning in northern states as the prime factors behind the air pollution crisis. The concentration of PM2.5 and PM10 hovered around 490 and 290 micrograms per cubic metre during the morning hours, marginally below the emergency limit of 500 and 300.
