Arvind Kejriwal’s odd-even road rationing scheme witnessed fruitful results in the capital and keeping in view the same, the Chandigarh Administration is all set to implement the scheme in the tri-city, post to the excessive use of crackers this Diwali and automobile pollution. The UT Administration issued a notice on November 2nd, Wednesday stating the odd-even scheme to be implemented from December 1st, 2016.
In an exclusive conversation with our correspondent, a senior official from the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), Mr. Bunty Baga stated that, “Chandigarh is place for Porsche cars, which are clearly evident on the gedi route where the majority of the youth is spotted wasting fuel; thereby, emitting carbon emissions up to 40% of particulate matter (PM)– air pollution which harms the environment recklessly. The odd even scheme shall contribute towards curbing this menace.” It is also being claimed that due to the burning of crackers the UT witnessed zero visibility at the Diwali night and pollutants reached the peak, alarmingly.
With the first of December being an odd number, the residents having an odd number plate on their vehicles will only be allowed to drive through the roads of Chandigarh.
As Chandigarh becomes prey to grievous air pollution which shall ultimately result to respiratory and various other health diseases, the initiative of the Odd-Even Scheme by the UT Administration seems to be the last resort.
