Question raised in Lok Sabha on Effects of Odd-Even Scheme, 13/12/2019
Question raised in Lok Sabha on Effects of Odd-Even Scheme, 13/12/2019. Central Pollution Control Board had conducted an assessment of the odd-even scheme implemented from 1st to 15th January, 2016 in Delhi. The report stated that while some reduction in air pollution is likely to happen due to odd-even scheme, a single factor or action cannot substantially reduce air pollution levels in Delhi. During 2019, the data is compiled for odd-even period (12 days), pre odd-even period and post odd-even period for the same number of days and presented in below. The data does not show much variation in pollution levels during the odd-even period. The average concentration and range of concentration for pre odd-even period was higher with respect to odd-even period and the post odd-even period is lower than that of odd-even period.
