No odd-even scheme until Delhi govt proves it is effective: NGT

Cab companies on Friday said they have accepted the Delhi government's request to not effect surge pricing for successful implementation of the odd-even scheme, which will be enforced in the city from November 13 to 17. You should have done this earlier if you wanted to. "No exemption be given to anyone, including two-wheeler riders, in the odd-even scheme", a bench headed by NGT chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar had said. The NGT questioned the Arvind Kejriwal government over the delay in deciding on artificial rain when "the statistics had indicated that rain leads to a fall in pollution levels", adding that "its patience shouldn't be tested".

While the Delhi government counsel also asked the Tribunal if they shall drop the idea of odd-even as Delhi's air quality was improving, the Tribunal asked the government to take a call, saying: "We are not going to give you a shelter on this one".

However, the NGT also hopes that the odd-even scheme would not affect the commuters.

"We can't compromise with safety and security of women ... the government is concerned about it", Gahlot said.

Citizens of Delhi will have to wait till Monday to know the contours of the third road rationing scheme.

Pulling up the Punjab government, it asked the Amarinder Singh government to take immediate measures. Vaibhavi, a resident of south Delhi who travels daily to Gurgaon for work, said, "If the government wants to implement the odd-even plan, it either needs to provide alternatives for women or allow us to use our cars every day". "Act immediately or we will attach government treasury", it said.

Delhi government made a decision to bring back odd-even vehicle rationing system in order to curb Delhi pollution which has risen to alarming levels in the past few days.

He said only CNG vehicles, emergency services such as ambulance and fire, and vehicles carrying waste shall be exempted.

During the hearing on Saturday, the Central Pollution Control Board submitted that they had warned the Delhi government orally in advance about the impending problem, which the Delhi government denied.

Pollution levels are 30 times the World Health Organisation's recommended limit in some areas of the national capital.
