Delhi government announces new plan to tackle pollution issue

The Government of Delhi has announced a plan to tackle the pollution issue which has been choking the nation’s capital for the last year or so. The plan is a globally tested formula and involves odd-numbered vehicles (two-wheeler and four-wheeler) plying on the capital’s roads on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays while vehicles with even numbered plates will be allowed to run only on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturday. It will be implemented on a trial basis from January 1 to January 15.

While many have gone up in arms including many parts of the local administration which have doubted the ability of the NCRs public transport system to handle the increased load, the plan has got approval of many environmentalists and more recently the CJI TS Thakur giving it firm backing. However, the CJI has also said that this move alone will not be enough to deal with the pollution deluge that the capital is currently facing.

The only exemptions to this new restriction system will be emergency vehicles and of course all modes of public transport. Further, the ruling AAP Government has also mooted for heavy vehicle entry time to be pushed to 11pm from the current 9pm, hiring of extra buses for last mile connectivity in Gurgaon and Noida and extension of Metro timings during this period.
