  • Odd-Even formula in Delhi from Nov 13 to 17 to curb pollution

The statement quoted Amarinder as saying: "Most of north India, including the national capital New Delhi, is now in the throes of a pollution crisis, induced largely by burning of paddy straw in the paddy-growing areas of Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh".

According to a notification issued by the Arvind Kejriwal Government, vehicles of the President, the Vice-President, the Prime Minister, the Governors, the Chief Justice of India, the Speaker of Lok Sabha, the Union Ministers, the Leaders of Opposition in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha, and SPG protectees among others will be exempt.

The odd-even vehicle rationing scheme will be enforced in Delhi for five days from November 13, Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot said on Thursday.

With the national capital gasping for breath, the Delhi government has made a decision to bring back the odd-even vehicle movement scheme for a week to tackle the air pollution crisis created by the killer smog.

He said that modalities of the road rationing scheme are the same as before with similar timings and exemptions.

"The Commission is of the opinion that there is an immediate need for effective action to be taken by the Union and the State agencies".

According to the policy, private vehicles are allowed to run based on the last number of their licence plates.

In 2016, the same scheme was enforced twice - January 1-15 and April 15-30.

Banning entry of trucks, construction activities and introducing odd-even was not the solution to the high pollution level, he said, adding, "Punjab and Haryana should evolve a technology and give financial assistance to stop stubble burning".

While Kejriwal insisted on an urgent meeting with his Punjab and Haryana counterparts, Amarinder Singh said that the issue can only be solved by the Central Government.

Like previous year, cars driven by women, CNG-run cars and two-wheelers would be exempt from the scheme.

Mr Kejriwal had earlier commented that using force would not help end the farm burning problem in Punjab and Haryana, which is choking Delhi.

"IGL stickers for cars will be available from tomorrow at 22 CNG stations across Delhi".

"The Delhi Metro has also promised to provide 100 small buses during the period".

An NDMC spokesperson said that contractors have been asked to execute the order.
