Delhi government does not file review petition in NGT on odd-even ruling

Roundup: Local gov't in Indian capital city scraps odd-even formula

However, the NGT stated that if the scheme is implemented, no exemption should be allowed to "any person or officer and two-wheelers".

Delhi and its surrounding states have been shrouded in a hazardous fog of toxic pollutants for almost a week, prompting authorities to roll out a slew of measures to combat the crisis.

The Delhi government has chose to file a plea before the National Green Tribunal to urge it to consider the exemption of women and two-wheelers from the odd-even scheme.

However, the decision was dropped by the Delhi government after the National Green Tribunal's (NGT) said none of the vehicles would be exempted. It has been a week that health emergency is declared in Delhi as hazardous smog clouds the region, making it unsafe for the people to breath.

"We are requesting the court to reconsider two conditions - one on two-wheelers and the other on ladies - because with both these in place, it will be very hard for us to implement".

The government claimed that the exemption was done keeping in mind the security of women in the city. The NGT has agreed to the government's scheme after it directed that only emergency services will be exempted from it during a hearing on Saturday.

The crisis comes amid the annual post-harvest burning of crop stubble and the onset of winter, which together have caused levels of unsafe pollutants to skyrocket.

The Delhi government on Monday also chose to work out a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) with state-owned helicopter service company Pawan Hans for aerial sprinkling of water over the city to contain pollution. However, unhappy with the NGT order, the Delhi government expressing its inability to enforce the odd-even scheme and said it will move the Tribunal on Monday requesting a review of its order and if the exemptions are granted.

In response to the Delhi government's charge that Haryana was not responsive to its requests for a meeting to discuss the smog situation and stubble burning, Khattar on Monday landed in Delhi and said he was in Delhi and ready to have a meeting with Kejriwal. The AAP had alleged that the subtle burning in Punjab and Haryana, was the main cause of the rising pollution in Delhi.

The smog's been so bad that schools have been closed this week. "This is likely to be accompanied by addition of moisture to Delhi's air and fall in the temperature which may result in an increase in pollution levels", said a forecast report prepared by Gufran Beig, Project Director of SAFAR.

Meanwhile, the Delhi BJP accused the AAP government of being in an "indecisive state" over the pollution crisis in the city and demanded Lt Governor Anil Baijal to call an all- party meeting.

The NGT on Saturday had given the go-ahead to the odd-even scheme from November 13-17. She also added that Kejriwal government had not even thought that it was necessary to make alternative arrangements to keep a back up plan ready if things don't go as planned with the odd even.
