NGT rejects plea challenging Delhi govt's decision to implement odd-even scheme

news

National Green Tribunal today refused to entertain a plea challenging the decision of Delhi Government to implement an odd-even road rationing scheme in the national capital in November this year.

A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel questioned the maintainability of the plea and dismissed it as withdrawn.

The plea filed by an advocate saying that Central Pollution Control Board did an assessment of the impact of the odd-even scheme on air quality of Delhi wherein it was found that during the implementation period, the ambient air quality of the city was found to be more deteriorated than the one when the said restriction was not in place.

Earlier, Delhi Government had announced the odd-even scheme from 4th to 15th of November this year. (AIR NEWS)
