Implement the odd-even formula to reduce air pollution in the national capital.

NEW DELHI: The National Green Tribunal (NGT) asked the Delhi government on Wednesday to tell it within 24 hours if it would enforce the odd-even car rationing system with or without exemptions should the city’s air quality dip to severe again.

The tribunal’s order follows the government’s assurance to implement the odd-even formula to reduce air pollution in the national capital.

“Are you sure you won’t grant any exemption when odd-even is implemented. Let’s be clear about it. Please tell us whether you will exclude two-wheelers or not?” the NGT asked.

In November, the government scrapped plans to enforce odd even after the NGT refused to exempt woman drivers, two wheelers and government officials from its ambit. The tribunal said the system cannot be implemented with exemptions.
