Sound hound slowly becoming a reason for agitation and dumbness. Watch complete news story of DNA for getting detailed updates!

The Urban Debate focused on basic necessity of 'clean air and water'. Our model cities: Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai are choking, people are forced to breathe poisonous air, and garbage disposal is an everyday problem. Our cities are becoming inhabitable. Will the Finance Minister finally include an allocation to fight pollution in the Union Budget? Magicbricks Now caught up with Dr.

Is the Delhi government lacking a clear roadmap for tackling the primary causes of vehicular pollution such as trucks passing through the capital? Despite support from the public over the odd-even scheme, why did the government not initiate the scheme again? What does the government plan to do after its odd-even formula phase 2 to be rolled out from 15th April? A discussion on Muqabla.


Fire from a burning garbage dump, which has been on for days, is resulting in high pollution levels in Mumbai. Lakhs of people are breathing in toxic air; more than 70 government schools in affected parts of the city have been shut down. There is an acrid smell in the air, say many residents of India's commercial capital. The government appears to have gone into lockdown. Apart from a tweet from the Chief Minister, no one seems to want to say anything. There is of course the standard response, we have ordered an inquiry and will wait for the results.

With an aim to provide holistic developmental exposure to our PGDM Students, IMS Ghaziabad PGDM Students along with Prof. Gaurav Dawar participated in a Debate on the 15-day trial of Delhi Government's ambitious Odd - Even Formula “ODD-EVEN REPORT CARD: Hit or a Miss?” with Rajdeep Sardesai at India Today Head office at Film City Noida. The Debate was chaired by Retd. Justice Markandey Katju, Former Supreme Court Judge, Mr. Ashutosh, Leader - AAP, Dr. Anuradha Shukla, Chief Scientist - CRRI and Ms Anumita Roy Chowdhary, Executive Director- Centre for Science and Environment.

The odd-even scheme that encouraged alternate day car use in an effort to cut down on air pollution in Delhi comes to an end. The jury is still out on whether there has been a dramatic drop in air pollution as a result of the scheme but what is clear is this the odd even scheme brought out the best of the city and its people. Who would have thought that there would be overwhelming compliance for a scheme in a city notorious for looking the other way, and not caring. The fact is this: Air pollution is a killer and Delhi is the world's most polluted city. And people know that.

India Today's exposé reveals the ground reality of the green tax in Delhi, where the Supreme Court order has gone up in smoke due to a truckers-toll agent nexus.

Midway through the Odd-Even plan in Delhi, the AAP government asks the High Court to extend the plan, citing its success. Data, however, shows that pollution levels have risen, both since December and since last year. Delhi transport minister Gopal Rai tells us why the Odd-Even plan should stay. Delhi Traffic Chief Muktesh Chander warns that traffic will become a problem once schools reopen. All that and more, on Agenda.

Arvind Kejriwal's odd and even number policy is a week old today, although the govt wants to enforce it for 15 days, but it seems the Delhi High Court scrap it tomorrow.
