  • Delhi Air Pollution Govt. submits action plan to NGT No exemptions for Odd Even rule

As per the reports, in their action plan, Delhi Government told NGT that Odd-even will be implemented without exemptions if the pollution level touches the sever category.

Delhi government had cancelled its planned Odd-Even scheme scheduled to start from 13 November this year after the National Green Tribunal removed exemptions made for certain categories of commuters including women.

Chaning its stand on the odd-even policy, the government in its action plan does not mention any exemption for women.

The government later withdrew that petition and filed a second review petition, asking for the road-rationing scheme to be implemented in NCR states too.

Facebook Live Town Hall on Net Neutrality December 6 at 7PM
The public relies on the Internet for many important daily functions, including educational research and political organizing. The center also found that on nine different occasions, more than 75,000 comments were submitted at the same second.


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.

According to the Delhi government, it had very strong reasons for making the exemptions, saying many women do not feel comfortable or safe in public transport, especially those who work at odd hours.

A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar passed the direction while observing that the air quality in the national capital was never normal. 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. Apart from that its plan also consists of action against polluting vehicles and restricting the entry of trucks into Delhi during severe conditions.
