Odd-Even: Kejriwal might offer exemption to two wheelers

Updated 13 Oct 2019 09:12 AM

The Delhi government, while announcing return of the scheme for the third time, said it is a part of seven-point action plan developed to fight air pollution in the winter.

Justifying the time-period, the government has attributed high level of air pollution occurring due to crackers on and around Diwali followed by stubble burning in neighbouring states.

As per the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) for Delhi and the National Capital, the odd-even scheme for vehicles automatically triggers when the air pollution gains a peak, for example, when the particulate matter PM 10 and PM 2.5 rises to 500 microgram per cubic meter and 300 microgram cubic meter respectively for 48 hours. This is termed as an alarming situation exposing citizens to greater health hazards.
