Authorities in New Delhi banished cars with number plates ending in an odd number on Monday in a bid to reduce the pollution, although politicians in the city of more than 20 million people, bickered over the causes of the pollution and who should take the blame for it. "You are not bothered and are letting the people die", the bench said. All construction activities were also banned until 5 November.

"I have a headache every day I wake up. Cases have been filed against 174 farmers", the officer told AFP.

While passing a slew of directions to curb pollution, it directed the Centre, state governments concerned and Delhi government to take immediate steps to take care of the "emergent situation due to air pollution".

The World Health Organisation's recommended safe daily maximum is a reading of 25.

Other parts of the country have also been choked by smog, the government's Central Pollution Control Board said Sunday.

Concluding the hearing, the Supreme Court asked the UP, Haryana and Punjab governments to provide Rs 100 per quintal assistance within seven days to prevent small and marginal farmers from burning stubble.

But national environment minister Prakash Javadekar accused Kejriwal of politicising the issue, while an MP from Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) violated the odd-even vehicle rule as a "symbolic protest" by driving a auto that was barred under the scheme.

According to the court ruling, it was an attempt to mitigate the extreme pollution problem facing the country's capital, which reached record levels last week. The major pollutant PM 2.5 was at 249 level in the national capital today, according to government's pollution monitoring agency SAFAR.

Despite the burning of crop residues now being deemed illegal, agricultural stakeholders said it was expected to continue as impoverished farmers could not afford farming machinery.

Siddharth Singh, a climate policy expert, said the traffic restrictions are "ineffective". "Right now it can not be a solution because motorised private transport has a very small share in the whole pie", Singh told AFP.
