The Delhi government on Wednesday submitted an action plan before the National Green Tribunal detailing measures it will take to combat pollution in the national Capital, ANI reported. The tribunal on Monday had censured the Delhi government for not filing an action plan on steps taken to curb air pollution, and had asked it to submit a reply within 48 hours.

The Aam Aadmi Party-led Delhi government said the odd-even vehicle rule will be implemented in the city without any exemptions if the pollution level touches the “severe” category, ANI reported. The odd-even scheme helps cut traffic on the roads by prohibiting cars and bikes from plying based on the last digit of their registration numbers – vehicles with odd digits ply on odd dates, and the others are allowed on even dates.

The Delhi government said that construction in the city will be completely stopped if the air quality worsened. Trucks will be prohibited from entering Delhi, and burning of waste will also be banned. Industries that add to the pollution will be shut, it added.

The green court will hear the case on Thursday again.

On Monday, the NGT had questioned authorities about the decision to host the India-Sri Lanka cricket match in New Delhi’s Feroz Shah Kotla stadium despite the poor air quality in the city.

Hazardous smog had led to multiple interruptions in the third Test between India and Sri Lanka on Sunday. Sri Lankan players wore masks as the air quality dipped, while some had reportedly vomited because of the pollution. “The situation is getting from poor to worst, children are suffering and the Delhi government has not even filed its action plan,” the panel had then said.
