“ Similar License -plate driving bans such as the one proposed in Delhi have failed to check air pollution in various cities world wide including Paris, Bagota, Beijing and Mexico city. According to analysis of various data. In fact, arbitrary restrictions have been shown to make air pollution worse in the long term.” Said Mr Varinder Arora, Convenor, Delhi Residents Forum.
“ In Delhi pollution is weather linked more in winters , The weather changes all the time, the emissions change all the time and trying to pin down whether a particular odd even vehicle license scheme works in Delhi or causes mass disruption as suddenly from Jnauary 1, 2016, one will not be allowed to move” said Mr V N Bali, of East Delhi Residents Welfare Federation.
“ More over the pollution problem in Delhi is from Diesel trucks coming in unrestricted rather than private vehicles, Government should promote more use of public transport by improving it and force car manufacturers to develop efficient cars and give incentives to consumers to buy such cars” added Rajiv Kakria, of GK 1 RWA.
“The current public transport system is insufficient to make up for the increase ridership expected from the scheme” said Mr Ritesh Dewan of Shalimar Bagh RWA
