The Delhi Government Calls Off the odd-even scheme in Delhi

As per News 18 , The Delhi government has called off the much-hyped odd-even policy in the National Capital. The Odd-Even scheme was to be implemented in Delhi from Monday November 13. As per the report, the Delhi Government decided to call-off the odd-even rationing because of the conditions put by the National Green Tribunal in the list of exempted vehicles.

Following the calling off of the odd-even plan, the government is likely to file a review petition with the National Green Tribunal. The report states that the Delhi government officials have called off the plan citing that with these conditions (Exempted vehicles), it would be difficult to implement the odd-even plan in the city.

The Delhi Transport Minister has cited that the public transport system (Metro, Bus and Auto) in the national capital will not be able to cope with the pressure if the over 30 lakh two-wheelers are not allowed to ply on the roads during the Even Odd scheme.

Five-day Odd-Even rationing to be implemented in Delhi from Monday, November 13

The National Green Tribunal (NGT), despite its apprehensions earlier on the Delhi government’s odd-even scheme, on Saturday approved the car rationing scheme while removing all major exemptions as suggested by the state government. “Delhi government is free to implement the odd-even car rationing scheme with the subject to conditions,” a bench headed by NGT chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar said today.

As per the report, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has permitted the Delhi government to execute the odd-even car rationing scheme in the national capital whenever PM10 and PM2.5 levels break the danger mark. PM10 and PM2.5 are particulate (Form of minute separate particles) matter in the surrounding air that can easily lodge deep inside the lungs and can lead to severe respiratory ailments.
