NGT OK with Odd Even, no exemption for two wheelers, govt servants or women



New Delhi Nov 11: Giving nod to the Odd Even scheme, NGT directs 'no exemption' for two wheelers, government servants or women.

NGT directs all the neighboring state governments and departments to ensure complete mechanism during environmental emergency, says don't wait for crisis situation. Also directed various departments and executing agencies for better cooperation and coordination including Delhi police.

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) had said it would examine the Delhi government's decision to roll out odd-even car rationing scheme for five days starting from November 13.



The AAP government had yesterday announced introduction of the odd-even scheme as part of a Graded Response Plan to tackle the alarming pollution situation in the national capital.



A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar directed the Delhi government to submit before it the details of the ambient air quality during the earlier implementation of the odd-even scheme.



The pollution monitoring body had said that there was no data to indicate that car rationing scheme has any impact on decrease in vehicular pollution and the fluctuations in PM10 and PM2.5 is due to weather and change in wind patterns.



The national capital is experiencing 'severe' air quality under a blanket of thick haze, as pollution levels have breached permissible standards by multiple times.



The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has recorded 'severe' air quality, meaning that the intensity of pollution was extreme.
