No odd-even, till its efficacy proven: NGT to Delhi Govt

The Green panel directed the counsel appearing for the Delhi government to be ready with all the requisite data and show before it the reason for implementing the latest round of scheme.

The Delhi government is being represented by advocate Tarunvir Kehar.

The green court issued the directive a day after the Delhi government announced it would bring back the odd-even plan from November 13 to 17 to combat severe air pollution in Delhi and NCR region.

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.

"The odd-even will go on".

The NGT ruled that only emergency vehicles will be exempted.

The Tribunal, which had earlier questioned the State government on why the scheme was being implemented and what the efficacy of such a move would be, on Saturday allowed the odd-even scheme to be implemented, but without exemptions.

The 21-year-old midfielders improve midfield options that Southgate was bemoaning just months ago. I'm really pleased with him. "To go to the World Cup? ".

So at the moment we are calling it off.

Shortly after National Green Tribunal issued orders not to exempt two whealers, women and government officials from odd-even traffic scheme, the Delhi Government made a decision to call off the odd-even scheme.

The government said that they can't take risk with women security. It further added that it was not "feasible" to arrange such a large number of buses "at this stage".

The tribunal directed the implementation of odd-even "right away" without waiting for 48 hours, in case PM2.5 and PM10 go beyond 400 and 700 units respectively.

Both the pollution control organisations also submitted that two-wheelers are more polluting than four-wheelers and their emissions comprise 20 per cent of the total vehicular pollution. "The absence of 30 lakh from roads will make transportation system chaotic in Delhi", Kailash Gehlot said.

The tribunal slammed DTC for not taking note of an NGT order on maintenance of buses and carrying out a rationalisation study so that the vehicles can be used more effectively. NGT asks Delhi government. The tribunal asked Kejriwal government to produce the letter on the basis of which the decision to implement odd-even scheme was taken, and whether the the government had sought the approval of the Lieutenant Governor.
