Cab companies on Friday said they have accepted the Delhi government's request to not effect surge pricing for successful implementation of the odd-even scheme, which will be enforced in the city from November 13 to 17.

The move has been made to encourage use of public transport during Delhi's Odd-Even plan.

'Dust storm in Middle East also behind smog' A Centre-run pollution agency has identified a late October dust storm in the Middle East and stubble-burning in northern states as the prime factors behind the air pollution crisis.

The NGT has asked Delhi government on the rationale behind application of the vehicle rationing scheme and produce before it the details of ambient air quality during earlier odd-even schemes.

"This will an added burden on us as we are already making losses", a DTC official said on the condition of anonymity. NGT also questioned the logic of exempting two-wheelers from the odd-even rule since it is common knowledge that two-wheelers cause the most amount of vehicular pollution, as much as 46 percent according to a study conducted by IIT Kanpur.

As a result, the Exige Cup 430 is 6.8kg lighter than any other in the range and has a power-to-weight ratio of 401bhp per tonne. Yet it won't fly away, as its revised aero package generates 485 lbs. of downforce near its 180 miles per hour top speed.

He said the modalities of the scheme, under which private four-wheeled vehicles with odd registration numbers were allowed to run on odd dates and those with even numbers on even dates from 8 a.m.to 8 p.m., would be the same as the previous phases.

The information was tweeted by Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot.

However, the Delhi Government has not given any exemption to its Ministers, including the Chief Minister. Also, commercial vehicles, bearing yellow number plates, will not come under Odd-Even scheme. Particulate matter (PM) 2.5 levels in Delhi's air have risen to 420 while the acceptable level is 60.

But the tribunal rapped him over this submission and said the Environment Pollution Control Authority (EPCA) had issued several suggestions and odd-even scheme was just one of them.

The scheme, which had evoked major controversy in Delhi, had been tried in other cities of the world in the past, including Mexico, Paris, Bogota and Beijing. "However, there will be no compulsion", Gahlot said.
