Delhi Government Lifts All Exemptions Under Odd-Even Scheme

Delhi Government Lifts All Exemptions Under Odd-Even Scheme

The Delhi government on Wednesday assured the National Green Tribunal (NGT) that it will bring the next Odd-Even traffic rationing scheme as per the tribunal's direction that includes "no exemptions". While the governments of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan had filed their action plans with the tribunal, the Delhi government had failed to do so.

The government has also said in its plan that construction will be stopped completely when air pollution level touches "severe" category, adding that the entry of trucks into the city will also be banned during the time.

Although the dates of the implementation of the odd-even scheme have not been specified as of now, sources in the Delhi government told Catch that the scheme is likely to take place before the end of year.

Aam Aadmi Party had strongly objected to NGT's decision on removing exemptions for women, two-wheelers, vehicles carrying children in school uniforms and VVIPs.

Texting and driving to become a primary offense under new house bill
For more than 14 months News 6 has spearheaded an initiative to drive change in Florida's ineffective texting and driving law. But he also noted state law already has prohibitions against racial profiling to try to protect minority motorists.

The vehicle rationing policy was not enforced, as the Delhi government took exception to the NGT's order to implement the odd-even scheme without any exemptions.

The NGT had slammed the Delhi government accusing it of having made a mess of Delhi. The AAP government had said that it did not wish to compromise the security of women.

"Odd-Even will come when the air-quality is beyond severe but what about other days?"

On November 24, the Supreme Court-appointed Environment Pollution Control Authority (EPCA) already made it clear that the next Odd-Even vehicle rationing scheme will be applied across the national capital region (NCR), including Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and not just Delhi, with minimum exemptions. Today, the Delhi government has submitted its much-awaited action plan to combat pollution level and the bad air quality.
