Odd-Even Scheme: Delhi govt to file a review petition in NGT today

Shallow fog will persist in Delhi tomorrow

On Saturday, the Delhi government said the third phase of the Odd-Even scheme is not returning on Monday, saying it is unable to enforce the measure after the NGT ordered the withdrawal of exemptions given to women drivers and two-wheelers. "This is not feasible to arrange such a large number of buses at this stage", a Delhi government statement said.

"What is the data on the basis of which the odd-even scheme is planned to be introduced only for five days, specially when the pollution is now diminishing, as reflected by the reports from the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC)", the Bench asked. "Whether the Delhi government was only informing the media about a review petition on the Odd-Even scheme since no review petition has been filed as yet", asked NGT as reported by ANI.

Arunodoy Prakash, media advisor to Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia told Firstpost that Delhi's present public transport system can not bear the gargantuan load of additional commuters that the lack of exemption to two-wheelers would cause.

On Saturday, the NGT chose to allow the odd-even scheme with the rider that no exemption except health emergency would be permitted; the EPCA mandate also has a clause which says that exemptions in the odd-even scheme should be minimised.

Should you violate the rules for the odd-even scheme, you will be fined ₹ 2,000. We can not take risks. The Centre rolled out a scheme to construct an Eastern Peripheral Highway to allow the trucks go to Punjab and Uttar Pradesh without entering the capital. This is due to the severe air pollution and smog in Delhi.

Delhi is considered to be the most polluted city in the world.

Thus, the AAP government, which was supposed to implement the scheme by allowing vehicles with registration number ending with an even number on roads on even dates while those ending with an odd number on odd dates beginning from Monday to Friday (November 13-November 17) for a period of five days, has chose to cancel its plan for the time being. Pollution in Delhi gets aggravated during winter months. But the AAP government received sharp criticism from the National Green Tribunal yesterday on the odd-even scheme. "We said we will file the plea today".

During the scheme, cars with number plates ending with an odd number will be allowed to ply only on odd dates (1, 3, 5 etc).

After the NGT passed the order to implement the odd-even scheme without any exemption, Vardhaman Kaushik, another appellant in the case told Firstpost that only the will of the people can solve the problem of air pollution in the national capital.
