Delhi: Odd-Even rule to be implemented to combat pollution

Delhi government on Wednesday told the National Green Tribunal that Odd Even rule will be implemented without exemptions to combat pollution

The Delhi government on Wednesday submitted its action plan to combat pollution recommending no exemption be given under the odd-even auto rationing scheme in the state.

Haryana and Punjab governments had told the court that a slew of measures including stopping construction work, burning waste, shutting schools and monitoring of industries causing emissions will be implemented whenever pollution levels beyond prescribed limits continuously for 48 hours. The entry of trucks in Delhi will also be banned when pollution levels are "severe'". However, inaction on the part of the Delhi authorities and the decision to conduct an worldwide test match in the capital led to severe criticism on the part of the tribunal.

It is your basic function which you have to do all the time.

The AAP government had in November called off the odd-even auto rationing scheme starting from after the the green bench gave a conditional nod to the government's decision to implement the scheme.

"Why have you referred to the EPCA's plan?"

Delhi government will not give any exemption to women when it implements the odd-even policy to combat pollution in the city. Why don't you apply your own brains?

NGT then listed the petition for Friday and directed Delhi and NCR states to suggest more measures which the tribunal could use to formulate a comprehensive action plan.

Referring to the improvement in the Capital's air quality since Wednesday because increased wind speed and slight drizzle, the Bench said, "What the might of the State cannot do, nature can do in one minute".

When the Bench asked the government about the same, the counsel for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government said the review petition filed by it was pending before the court.

Earlier, the NGT had directed the Central Pollution Control Board, Delhi Pollution Control Committee and every state pollution control board to file ambient air quality analysis before the tribunal on monthly basis and also put up on their websites to enable the concerned authority to take effective steps to control air pollution.
