Delhi government on Wednesday told the National Green Tribunal that Odd Even rule will be implemented without exemptions to combat pollution

The much-touted odd-even-rule will be implemented in the national capital without exemptions, Arvind Kejriwal told Green Tribunal in an action plan. Among the measures would be the odd-even scheme, along with stopping of trucks in Delhi and restricting any outdoor activities of schoolchildren.

Directing the city government not to implement the scheme unless it established that it was not counter-productive, the NGT asked it to give an undertaking that it will roll out odd -even only when particulate matter (PM) 2.5 was over 300.

NGT had slammed the Delhi government last month for wanting to exempt women drivers and two-wheelers from the odd-even vehicle rationing scheme that was scheduled from 13 to 19 November in the national capital.

NGT also questioned the NCR states about the fine, which would be levied, if the directions are not complied with.

The change in the stance regarding the odd-even policy is, without doubt, the biggest highlight of the new action plan.

When the bench asked the Delhi government its stand on the odd-even scheme, the counsel appearing for it said the government wants to implement it with exceptions and has also filed a review plea in this regard which will be heard tomorrow. Pollution causing industries to shut.

The government also plans to run more buses to provide a hassle-free experience for commuters and Delhi Metro will increase the frequency and number of carriages during this period. "The first line of the action plan should be that the air quality level in Delhi never be near the permissible standards".

The counsel for petitioner Vardhaman Kaushik, who had filed plea against worsening air quality in Delhi, had said the action plans submitted by the states were merely "an eye-wash" and they have only "copy-pasted" the recommendations of the Supreme Court appointed EPCA. "It should have instructions for each level of air quality", noted the bench.
