Pollution causing industries to shut. Chaning its stand on the odd-even policy, the government in its action plan does not mention any exemption for women. However, later the city government demanded that the Odd-Even scheme shall come in entire NCR region and not just Delhi.

Earlier, the government had announced exemptions for women drivers, two-wheelers and vehicles carrying children in school uniforms, besides VVIPs.

The Delhi government was forced to withdraw its appeal for modifications in the odd-even scheme that they made before the tribunal.

However, appreciating the city government, the bench headed by NGT chief Justice Swatanter Kumar has sough more clarity.

Delhi government had cancelled its planned Odd-Even scheme scheduled to start from 13 November this year after the National Green Tribunal removed exemptions made for certain categories of commuters including women.

Sri Lankan players wore masks as the air quality dipped, while some even vomited on field because of the pollution.

If implemented, this will be the third time Delhi will bear witness to the implementation of the odd-even rule.

The Delhi government then filed a review plea stating that it sought exemptions due to inadequate numbers of public buses.
