Pollution breaks all records in Capital Delhi and NCR as Air Quality Index touches the ‘unbreathable’ mark of 1000.

The adjoining districts of Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and Haryana too record dangerous levels of pollution.We are not doing blame game. It is a matter of our health. All the political parties should sit down and talk on this matter tweets Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal .

Come November 4, and the third edition of the odd-even scheme will be rolled out in the national capital. With skies covered in smog and air quality index (AQI) crossing 500, Delhi’s air quality dipped to emergency levels for the first time since January this year.

In September, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had announced that the odd-even scheme would be rolled out in Delhi post the stubble burning season under the ‘Winter Action Plan’.

The stubble burning by fsrmersnof Ounjab and Haryana is also cited as a major causenofbspiralling pollution and worsening situation. Both CMs of thiese states were roped in the anti pollution campaigns in Delhi.

Reduction of vehicular traffic on roads has been proposed in a bid to curb air pollution. Under the odd-even scheme, which will continue till November 15, private non-transport cars with odd registration numbers will run on odd dates and those with even registration numbers will run on even dates.

Earlier state government had implemented the odd-even scheme twice in 2016 – first from January 1-15 and then from April 16-30.
