Odd Even formula can’t be imposed like this: NGT says On Odd Even scheme
FLASH: On Odd Even scheme NGT says, 'Odd Even formula can't be imposed like this. Nothing has been done from your (Delhi govt) end since the past one year.' SC never asked for imposition of this scheme. SC and NGT have suggested 100 measures to curb pollution but you always opted for odd-even. Delhi government will have to justify the implementation of this scheme. When situation is improving, the government is trying to implement it. You should have done this earlier if you wanted to. This will now cause inconvenience to people. NGT asks the Delhi government to prove whether Odd Even scheme has reduced pollution or else NGT will stay the imposition of the scheme. Hearing to continue tomorrow. NGT asks Delhi govt to impose 1 lakh fine on builders found violating directions, as construction work has been halted in view of smog & air pollution. NGT directs states to ensure that there should be no crop burning, says if any incident is reported to NGT, a considerable amount of fine will be charged from salary of responsible officer.
