Delhi government files plea in NGT seeking changes in its previous directions

Delhi Pollution LIVE Green Court NGT Hearing On Delhi Government's Odd Even Rule To Curb Smog

After the National Green Tribunal (NGT) gave a go-ahead to implement the odd-even vehicle scheme for November 13-17 - but with fewer exemptions to vehicle categories - the local government has called off the programme.

In the light of this order, the Delhi Government made a decision to call off the implementation of the scheme from 13-17 November, stating it would not "compromise with the safety of women".

However, women, two-wheelers and government servants won't be exempted during the scheme.

The Delhi government had on Saturday said it would approach the green court again on Monday requesting the exemptions and, subject to the NGT decision, it would "consider implementing it again".

Also, the two-wheelers were exempted because the city does not have enough bus services to support the increase in the passengers.

According to it, about 3,500 new buses were being procured to ply in the national capital.

The odd-even scheme involves having vehicles with odd number registration numbers on the roads on odd dates and those with even registration numbers on even dates.

"We can not ignore the pollution", the Supreme Court bench said, adding that it will hear the plea today itself after finishing the matters listed on its board.

BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma also slashed down on the Delhi government remarking that, the AAP government never implemented hundred of other option suggested by the NGT to overcome the situation but was stuck on the odd even scheme only.

Will the NGT, the Delhi government or the Delhi Police guarantee my safety?

Ghaziabad was the most polluted city in the entire NCR with an AQI of 500 and PM2.5 at an astounding 816 units at 4.00 p.m - over 32 times the safe limit.

The Met office has forecast rains for November 15.

Meanwhile, the supreme court has agreed to hear a plea today seeking immediate measures to curb the alarming level of pollution in Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR).

In response to the Delhi government's charge that Haryana was not responsive to its requests for a meeting to discuss the smog situation and stubble burning, Khattar on Monday landed in Delhi and said he was in Delhi and ready to have a meeting with Kejriwal. Advocate Gaurav Kumar Bansal, who was arguing against the Delhi government in the earlier case related to odd-even told Firstpost that the Delhi government still has time to file a review petition. "It is hard to say what the outcome of this exercise was", says Saransh Sharma who is a parent of a school-going child at a Delhi government school.
