Earlier in November the state government had to call off the odd-even plan after the NGT ordered the withdrawal of exemptions given to two wheelers and woman only vehicles
Delhi government will not give any exemption to women when it implements the odd-even policy to combat pollution in the city. The change in stance regarding the odd-even policy came to notice after the state submitted its action plan to combat pollution to the National Green Tribunal on Wednesday.
Besides the change in stance regarding the odd-even policy, the plan according to The Indian Express report includes several strict measures to curb the rising air pollution levels in the capital.
These measures include complete stopping of all construction activities when the pollution level reaches the ‘severe category.’ All entry of trucks and burning wastage will be completely banned in the NCR. Also, the immediate closure of all pollution causing industries has also been recommended by the state government to the tribunal.
