The policy also envisages propelling India’s automotive industry amongst the top three nations in the world in engineering, manufacturing and export of automotive vehicles and components.
Delhi has begun its second attempt at following traffic restrictions to reduce air pollution. On the first day of the new "odd-even" scheme, over 1300 cars had been penalised Rs. 2,000 each for violating road rules which will apply for the next fortnight.
Odd Even scheme will return for second 15 day spell and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is considering making it a permanent feature for 15 days every single month. Is that wise or does it ignore the conceptual weakness of the scheme? Chief Minister has admitted that in January the impact on pollution was less than expected, Is it justified to bring the scheme back as an attempt to reduce conjunction instead?

NEW DELHI: At around midnight on Sunday, a group of experts and officials were at Delhi's border with Gurgaon for a surprise inspection. What they learnt is this - the Supreme Court had imposed a green tax of Rs. 700 and Rs. 1,300 on commercial vehicles entering Delhi, but on Day 1, not a single rupee had been charged.
In order to curb air pollution in Delhi, the National Green Tribunal has ordered that the commercial vehicles entering the national capital will have to pay environmental compensation charge, besides toll tax.
