Delhi govt wants exemptions for women for 1 yr in review plea

Delhi govt wants exemptions for women for 1 yr in review plea

New Delhi, Nov 14 (UNI) The Delhi Government on Tuesday filed a fresh review petition before the National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Odd-Even, hours after the Tribunal refused to allow the scheme with exemptions for two-wheelers and women.



In the petition, the Government requested NGT to exempt two-wheelers and women drivers under Odd-Even scheme for a year or till arrangements for additional 2,000 buses are made.



It has also urged the Tribunal to direct neighbouring states to implement Odd-Even.



Earlier this afternoon, the Kejriwal Government has withdrawn its petition on Odd-Even scheme for modification following NGT's refusal to allow the scheme with exemptions for two-wheelers and women.



During the hearing, the Green Court asked the Delhi Government why the two-wheelers should be exempted from the Odd-Even scheme, when they add substantially to the pollution on Delhi roads.



Lashing out at the petitioners, it said, 'You have not followed our orders, since the last one-and-a-half years. During the last hearing, you mentioned about bringing 4,000 new buses in the national capital. What happened to that?'



The Court further directed the government to provide full information about the defaulters and the fines imposed on them.



'Why did not you take strict action against the defaulters?' it said.



The Green Court further asked the Delhi Government why did it not sprinkle water on the roads, leading to deteriorating air quality and health emergency-like situation.



On Tuesday, though there was some improvement in the air quality in the national capital, at some places it was still in the “severe category".
