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.

The income-tax department has issued a ~30-crore notice to the Aam Aadmi party (AAP) for allegedly violating norms on collecting donations, including “hawala entries” worth ~2 crore.
The order for tax assessment issued on November 23 sought the party’s explanation by December 7, saying it “incorrectly disclosed hawala money as voluntary donations”. The AAP said the order was “bogus” and accused the “people who run the country” of muzzling the voice of Delhi’s ruling party. The reference was to the BJP government at the Centre, with whom the AAP has a running dispute over administrative control of Delhi.
The I-T department declared all donations to the AAP in 2014-2015 as illegal, revoking tax exemptions given to it as a party.
