The government also issued various directives in the new action plan including ban on entry of polluting heavy motor vehicles and temporary ban on construction.
However, appreciating the city Government, the Bench headed by NGT chief Justice Swatanter Kumar has sought more clarity.
The tribunal took exception that Punjab and Haryana were following the Supreme Court-appointed Environment Pollution Control Authority's (EPCA's) comprehensive action plan and not applying their own mind.
Further, during the hearing, the NGT directed the Delhi Government and neighbouring States to clarify their action plans and how they would implement the Graded Resp-onse Action Plan (GRAP) given the severity of the air quality. Why don't you apply your own brains?
Los Angeles Clippers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves - 12/6/17 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction
The Timberwolves beat the Los Angeles Clippers 113-107 on Wednesday night, to push their record to 15-11 on the season. It's a game they were supposed to win and they did so without a true standout performance from one player.
Besides the change in stance regarding the odd-even policy, the plan according to The Indian Express report includes several strict measures to curb the rising air pollution levels in the capital.
"Odd-even will come when the air-quality is beyond severe but what about other days?"
According to the Delhi government, it had very strong reasons for making the exemptions, saying many women do not feel comfortable or safe in public transport, especially those who work at odd hours. Therefore, NGT again pulled Delhi government and asked to submit action plan in two days.
The tribunal had on Wednesday slammed the Delhi government and the neighbouring states over their action plan on ways to deal with severe air pollution in the city and directed them to file a detailed document to tackle with the problem.
