NGT to decide odd-even fate today, raps government on move

The National Green Tribunal rapped the Delhi government on Friday for going ahead with odd-even traffic restrictions at a time the air quality appeared to be improving, and said it could ‘stay’ the scheme during a special hearing on Saturday if the government failed to prove that the restrictions were effective.

Just yesterday, the NGT had rapped the Delhi government on its knuckles for deciding to implement the scheme. It asked the Delhi government why it has not introduced the odd-even car rationing scheme earlier in the week, when the air quality was much worse.

The NGT also wondered why so many would be exempt from the odd-even rule. It asked how the Delhi government expected to improve air quality if so many didn’t have to follow the car rationing rule.
