Supreme Court wonders why odd-even scheme not working in Delhi
New Delhi: The Supreme Court today wondered why Arvind Kejriwal-led government’s much hyped Odd-Even scheme has not been able to reduce pollution level and steps taken to achieve ambient air quality standards seemed not to be working.
”Why no difference is made out in pollution level in Delhi, even after steps have been taken like odd-even scheme, diversion of trucks from the national capital. What are the solutions,” a bench headed by Chief Justice T S Thakur asked while hearing a PIL filed in 1985 to check pollution levels.
The bench also comprising Justices A K Sikri and R Banumathi, which gave a special hearing on Saturday, said that earlier, the trucks used to ply through the centre of the national capital but now they have been diverted but still no difference seems to have been made in improving the ambient air quality.
