Arvind Kejriwal seems to be more happy with introduction of pink tickets....

The air quality of Delhi not seems to improve despite the Government’s action by introduction of lot of preventive measures.

Delhi odd-even scheme starts from November 4: Timings, rules, penalty explained

The odd-even rule will be applicable in Delhi from 8 am to 8 pm, except on Sundays

There will be no exemption for vehicles of Delhi government

As the air quality in the national capital begins to become worse, odd-even scheme is all set to make a comeback in Delhi from next week. Started in 2016, the odd-even scheme is a car-rationing method where cars with odd and even number plates will ply on alternate days. Kejriwal government's odd-even scheme will apply to all non-transport four-wheeled vehicles and even those coming in from other states. Reintroducing the odd-even car rationing scheme will help to reduce air pollution in the capital, said Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Rules: Starting from November 4, odd-numbered vehicles will be allowed on Delhi roads on odd dates and even-numbered vehicles will be allowed on even dates. The car rationing scheme will run till November 15. The rule will be applicable in Delhi from 8 am to 8 pm, except on Sundays. It will be the third time that odd-even scheme will come into force in Delhi.

Exemptions: Two-wheelers will be exempted. Vehicles used for medical emergencies will be exempted, said Kejriwal. "Women driving alone, cars having all women as occupants and women accompanied by children aged less than 12 years will be exempted," Kejriwal said. Vehicles carrying school children in uniform are also exempted.

As usual, the Indian administrations are found wanting.....the alarming situation needs drastic solution.

1. Complete moratarium on all vehicles, factory emissions for 1 week except emergencies. Shutdown everything, allow the existing pollution to come down - it will dissipate due to natural weather pattern. So people can breathe some what better air.

2. All Delhi vehicle owners should exchange their 2 and 4 wheelers with electric scooters and cars immediately. These existing petrol and diesel vehicles can be sold to the people in other nearby states. Automakers and acessories companies to convert petrol bunks into charging stations on warfooting,

As usual, the politicians of Delhi are fooling the Delhiites who are found wanting.....the alarming situation warrants urgent drastic solution on their part. It is they who elected this Government to rule and voted to power and now they are paying the penalty. LOL

And Delhiities who believed the tall promises made by this Party in their Election manifesto, may be dreaming for those promises to get realised. Whereas the Party which governs the State/UT may be busy in finding the sources of corruption, scam, scandals, etc to swindle the public money. Of course, the Delhiites who elected this inactive Government may feel more happy and wish to keep their lips tight enjoying freebies offered by the Government.

While the entire country is watching Delhi with more concern about its deteriorating air quality, there seems to be no much of an agitation, protest, etc on the part of the Delhiites who practically live in this gas chamber city.

When they feel comfortable and sing the glory of AAP, nothing is possible to improve the air quality except to keep to busy by issuing Press Statements everyday with tons and tons of lies…LOL

BWT, what is the fate of this 900 crores...?? That goes without saying that Delhiites are NOT much bothered about their own money...LOL

RTI reply reveals AAP government in Delhi has not spent almost 80% of the Green Tax collected in last four years

The green tax was supposed to be used to buy electric buses, but no bus have inducted in Delhi yet

While Delhi continues to grapple with a very high level of air pollution, an RTI reply has revealed that the AAP government in Delhi didn’t spend most of the money collected under green tax over last several years. The Arvind Kejriwal led government spent only around 20% of the money collected for mitigation of environmental problems.

As per the RTI reply accessed by Times Now, the Delhi government has said while green tax of ₹1174.67 crore was collected since 2015, only ₹272.51 crore have been spent. Moreover, of the ₹272 crore spent, ₹265 crore were spent on the orders of the Supreme Court. The Delhi government on its own spent only a few crores of rupees of the green fund for repairing roads. The RTI reply states that ₹265 crore was spent on the Delhi–Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System. This means that a huge amount of ₹902 crore remains unutilised in the fund collected as green tax by the Delhi government. That’s a whopping 77% of the fund sitting idle.

Of course, there are cities we need to worry more about AQI......

Delhi struggles to breathe but not even in top 10 polluted Indian cities

India Today Data Intelligence Unit (DIU) analysed the AQI bulletin provided by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and found that Delhi, in fact, does not feature among the 10 most polluted cities of India.

Over the last few days, Delhiites are having a tough time breathing. With thick smog in the air, the Capital has practically converted to a gas chamber. On Monday, however, there was a slight improvement in pollution levels with the Air Quality Index (AQI) dipping from 'severe' (400+) to 'unhealthy' (150-200).

India Today Data Intelligence Unit (DIU) analysed the AQI bulletin provided by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and found that Delhi, in fact, does not feature among the 10 most polluted cities of India.

The average AQI calculated for 24 hours (November 3, 4 pm to November 4, 4 pm) showed that Jind in Haryana had the most toxic air among 97 cities analysed. Jind's average AQI was 448. Delhi's average AQI was 407.

Sympathize with all delhites, volunteer organisers should form a committee and plan strategies for future, such as have a mass tree planting drive. Nurseries get going and start increasing sapplings. Schools, universities, join hands with nurseries and plan areas where more sapplings can be planted. Hope my suggestion helps
