Reducing transport activities, improving technologies and relocating traffic sources from crowded areas are some of the measures for better urban planning that can help Delhi combat rising air pollution, a leading health and medical research institute said on Friday.

The tribunal on Friday said the scheme was a "farce", and that it can not be implemented from next week without its permission.

Speaking to the media, Delhi's Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot said that the state government will file a review petition in the NGT urging it to exempt the 2-wheelers and women.

The Delhi Transport Corporation will operate 500 additional buses under Paryavaran Seva, with half their seats reserved for women and onboard marshals for safety, during the five days of odd-even period that rolls out on Monday.

Taking serious cognisance of the Delhi smog, which has made breathing impossible in the state and the National Capital Region, it slammed the government for acting late on the worsening pollution levels and not applying the odd-even rule earlier.

Wagon Cab said: "We welcome the government's decision of implementing the odd and even rule to deal with the current environment situation". The tribunal gave its approval for the scheme even as it asked if the scheme was being implemented with the consent of both the Lieutenant Governor as well as the Delhi government. The tribunal also asked the Centre and Kejriwal government to name a big city where PM 10 levels were lower than 100 in the country. The NGT questioned the Arvind Kejriwal government over the delay in deciding on artificial rain when "the statistics had indicated that rain leads to a fall in pollution levels", adding that "its patience shouldn't be tested".

The tribunal on Saturday also asked the Uttar Pradesh Government about the number of violators challaned in Noida and Greater Noida.
