The AAP government had chose to implement the odd-even scheme for five days from November 13 to 17.

In a plea filed to the NGT, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government sought changes in the tribunal's previous directions which rejected most exemptions given under the auto rationing scheme, including those given to two-wheelers and women drivers.

The NGT, which had given a conditional nod to the Odd-Even scheme, said that it should be implemented as and when PM (particulate matter) 10 level goes above 500 micrograms per cubic metre and PM 2.5 level crosses the limit of 300 micrograms per cubic metre and persist for 48 hours at a stretch. "We will go back to NGT on Monday, file a review petition for them to reconsider their decision regarding the two", said Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot.

The Delhi government said it will approach the green court again on Monday, and request that exemptions be given for women drivers and two-wheelers.

The toxicity in the air rose to "severe-plus" category on a day schools in the national capital reopened after remaining closed since Thursday due to "severe" air pollution levels.

The CNG vehicles and emergency services, such as ambulance and fire engines, will only get exemption during the odd-even scheme. Large parts of northern India are also affected - in fact the air in some cities is worse than in Delhi.

According to the Newspaper,"We discussed that around 3000 crores will be spent to check the pollution levels in Delhi".

Delhi's air, among the world's dirtiest, worsens in the winter months.

Nikhil Pahwa, an activist and journalist who has written about air pollution, outlined 22 different ideas on Twitter to curb it, adding that the government has always been aware of such measures.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud considered the submission of lawyer RK Kapoor that rise in dust particles on roads, stubble burning in Delhi's neighbouring states like Haryana and Punjab have led to an alarming rise in pollution levels in the National Capital region and its adjoining areas.
