Odd-Even Called Off For Now By The Delhi AAP Government

Vaibhavi, a resident of south Delhi who travels daily to Gurgaon for work, said, "If the government wants to implement the odd-even plan, it either needs to provide alternatives for women or allow us to use our cars every day".

Women's security can not be compromised, will consider if exemptions granted, says govt.

Questioning the Delhi government's odd-even vehicle rationing scheme between 13-17 November proposed to combat the rising pollution levels in the national capital, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has said that it will not allow its implementation until the state government proves its efficacy and that it is not counter-productive. The information was tweeted by Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot.

The tribunal on Friday said the scheme was a "farce", and that it can not be implemented from next week without its permission.

Delhi government had made a decision to implement the odd-even scheme for five days from November 13 to 17. Mr Gahlot said the authorities are ready to roll it out immediately if the exemptions are granted. "This is not feasible to arrange such a large number of buses at this stage", a Delhi government statement said. Has odd-even been productive in reducing pollution level?

"The odd-even will go on". The NGT said that only emergency vehicles will get exemption during the Odd-Even scheme. The tribunal directed that odd-even should be implemented "right away" without waiting for 48 hours, in case PM2.5 and PM10 go beyond 400 and 700 units respectively.

The NGT also asked the Delhi Traffic Police to deploy its personnel at traffic lights, observing that nearly all the main roads in the city are witness to diesel vehicles which are older than 10 years and petrol vehicles which are older than 15 years. "You are only enriching the contractors through the order", it said.

A bench headed by NGT chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar said that no one should be exempted from the scheme, except for CNG vehicles and emergency services such as ambulance and fire.

During the hearing on Saturday, the Central Pollution Control Board submitted that they had warned the Delhi government orally in advance about the impending problem, which the Delhi government denied.
