On Odd-Even, Green Court Says Women, 2-Wheelers Not Exempt: 10 Facts

Delhi Govt to allow free travel in all DTC Cluster buses during Nov 13-17 odd-even scheme

"Two conditions of NGT that two wheelers and women can not be exempted make it hard to implement odd-even as we do not have adequate buses", Gahlot said.

NGT asks Delhi government about reasons behind exemptions and the impact of pollution emanating from two-wheelers, and whether they intend to employ this scheme of #OddEven whenever the pollution levels spiral, to which the Delhi Govt stated that this couldn't be said as of now. A bench headed by NGT chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar said that no one should be exempted from the scheme, except for CNG vehicles and emergency services such as ambulance and fire.

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

Not only the two-wheelers but women and government employees also won't be exempted from the odd-even rule.

The National Green Tribunal further criticised the Delhi government asking "When situation is improving, the government is trying to implement it".

After NGT's order, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal held a meeting and decided not to go ahead with the third phase without exemptions, pointing to concerns over "women security" and "insufficient public transport".

This decision has come as a result of rising air pollution in Delhi, and an attempt to reduce vehicular pollution in the city. It also directed the Delhi government to ban on the construction works that are going in the city.

Meanwhile, the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) told the NGT they had warned the Delhi government orally in advance about the impending problem, which the latter denied.

"Your buses create so much noise on the road".

The tribunal rapped the DTC chairman-cum-managing director 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. United Airlines has asked its customers who plan to travel from 9 to 13 November to book their tickets before November 18.

At around 3.30 pm, Environment Minister Imran Hussain said the levels of PM2.5 and PM10 had also dropped. In fact, the improvement in the air quality made during the day started diminishing from around 2 pm itself.
