Odd-even scheme: Delhi government announces free bus service, DTC has 1 bus for 45000 people

The National Green Tribunal on Saturday gave its approval for implementing the Odd-Even scheme in Delhi from November 13 to November 17, but with conditions applied.

"It is a farce". The tribunal has directed the Delhi government to implement Odd-Even scheme as and when PM 10 crosses 300 level and PM 2.5 crosses 500.

In the afternoon today, the NGT chaired a meet to examine the Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government's odd-even auto rationing scheme for five days, starting from November 13.

The Tribunal disapproved all the exemptions that were given by the city government during the previous two phases of odd-even in January and April 2016.

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. To this, the Delhi Government stated that this couldn't be said as of now. "We are slashing prices on Ola Share (facility that helps travellers save cost by sharing it with other Ola users), to be made available starting Rs 35, to encourage adoption of shared rides", Ola said.

However, the NGT refused to give any relaxation to two-wheelers from the rule. When statistics indicate that rains lead to a fall in pollution levels, why did you take time to spray water?

While passing several directives, the NGT said every entry point to Delhi should be properly managed by the city government, the corporations should ensure that there was no congestion, and Uttar Pradesh and Haryana should depute special forces at the border of the national capital to avoid traffic jams.

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

"Prove whether the odd-even scheme reduced the pollution in the air or else we will stay the imposition of the scheme", it said. Both SC and NGT suggested 100 measures to curb pollution but you always opted for odd-even.

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

But on Saturday, it gave a green signal to the government.

"The situation in the capital is improving".
