  • Odd-even scheme: Delhi government announces free bus service, DTC has 1 bus for 45000 people

Though the Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot on Friday said that commuters can travel for free in Delhi Transport Corporation buses during the odd-even scheme, the National Green Tribunal has questioned its effectiveness and opposed it. "This one measure you want to implement".

The Tribunal disapproved all the exemptions that were given by the city government during the previous two phases of odd-even in January and April 2016. You (Delhi government) don't have enough CNG buses.

"Prove whether the odd-even scheme reduced the pollution in the air or else we will stay the imposition of the scheme", it said.

In a statement, the government later said that it has made a decision to "defer" its implementation.

Ola in a statement said: "The current levels of pollution and resultant smog in the national capital are worrisome and it is imperative that we join hands with the government in their efforts to curb this situation". It has asked you to implement the measures to combat pollution.

Stating that Delhi the government could not compromise on the safety of women, Gahlot added that the city government also did not have enough busses or alternatives for the public transport to accommodate over 60 lakh two-wheeler riders.

Arvind Kejriwal-led government announced on Thursday that the scheme, which allows private cars with odd and even registration numbers to ply only on alternate days, would be rolled out from November 13 to 17 in view of the rising pollution in Delhi. "I know public transport suffers from several issues, but we need to start thinking and act before it is too late".

The NGT today also asked the Delhi government the rationale behind implementing the Odd-Even scheme now and not when air quality was worse.

The national capital is experiencing "severe" air quality under a blanket of thick haze, as pollution levels have breached permissible standards by multiple times.

The NGT's decision came after the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) told the bench that two-wheelers were more polluting than other vehicles, and emissions from two-wheelers accounted for over 20 per cent of the total vehicular pollution.
