The Delhi government on Monday moved the National Green Tribunal (NGT) seeking modification of its November 11 order refusing to exempt women and two-wheelers from the odd-even scheme to tackle pollution.
The application, filed before a bench headed by NGT chairperson justice Swatanter Kumar, said it may affect the safety of women. It sought that exemptions be allowed for one year till the government procures 2,000 buses for public transport to carry the lakhs of commuters
