Delhi Government Lifts All Exemptions Under Odd-Even Scheme

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.

The change in the stance regarding the odd-even policy is, without doubt, the biggest highlight of the new action plan.

When the bench asked the Delhi government its stand on the odd-even scheme, the counsel appearing for it said the government wants to implement it with exceptions and has also filed a review plea in this regard which will be heard tomorrow.

Last month, the NGT ruled that Delhi government must implement Odd-Even rule without exemptions to fight air pollution, which is reeling under "severe" zone.

Delhi government will not give any exemption to women when it implements the odd-even policy to combat pollution in the city.

UEFA also divided host cities into pairs, with each pair sharing matches in a given group. Each host nation that qualifies will be guaranteed two home matches in the group stage.

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 on Wednesday asked the Delhi government counsel to sit with the chief secretary and member secretary to formulate a detailed action plan which would also state the "normal" AQI levels for Delhi, in which there will be little to no health effects on people. Also, it told the court that the system is not equipped to accommodate so many two-wheeler drivers. "The first line of the action plan should be that the air quality level in Delhi never be near the permissible standards". "The Delhi government has not followed the promises it made".

The rules specified last month by the NGT only exempted emergency vehicles like PCR vans, fire brigade and ambulances from the scheme.

On Monday, the green court had lashed out at the Kejriwal government for not filing a comprehensive action plan and slammed authorities for holding the India-Sri Lanka cricket match despite poor air quality.
