Delhi government on Wednesday agreed to implement its vehicle-rationing scheme, Odd-Even, without any exemptions as directed by the National Green Tribunal.

No exemption be given under Odd-Even.

The state government, in its action plan, also told the NGT that entry of truck in Delhi will be banned, adding that the industries causing pollution will be shut down. The NGT gave the go-ahead to the government on the condition that women drivers and two-wheelers must be exempted.

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

U.S. homeless on rise for time since 2010
Homelessness in Minnesota climbed 4.5 percent in 2017 compared to the year before, according to estimates released by the U.S. This year, HUD and local communities launched a more intense effort to more accurately account for the population.

However, the NGT has sought a detailed action plan from Delhi government and neighbouring states by Thursday on how they would implement the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP), while observing that the air quality in the national capital was never normal. It said on Monday, "The government only talks about challans (prosecution slips). but nothing is reflected on the ground".

It had earlier directed the Central Pollution Control Board, Delhi Pollution Control Committee and every state pollution control boards to file ambient air quality analysis before the tribunal on a monthly basis and also put up on their websites to enable the concerned authority to take effective steps to control air pollution. Sri Lankan players wore masks as the air quality dipped, while some even vomited on field because of the pollution.

On November 24, the Supreme Court-appointed Environment Pollution Control Authority (EPCA) already made it clear that the next Odd-Even vehicle rationing scheme will be applied across the national capital region (NCR), including Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad and not just Delhi, with minimum exemptions.
