Dense smog continues to engulf the national capital on Sunday. However, shallow to moderate fog will persist over some places of northwest plains, east and northeastern states on November 13. Meanwhile, the entry of trucks & heavy vehicles were barred into the capital, in view of high levels of air pollution.
As per weathermen, an active Western Disturbance is likely to approach the Western Himalayas around November 13. In wake of this, the fog will continue over the northwestern plains. However, with the moisture present in the air, the fog will persist but with a reduced intensity during the morning hours.
Meanwhile, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has directed Delhi Government to seize decade old diesel cars and 15-year-old petrol cars for curbing pollution levels over the capital.
The Delhi government called off the odd-even scheme, which was to be implemented from Monday after the National Green Tribunal ordered the withdrawal of exemptions under it, Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot said.
Earlier this week, the Delhi government had announced the implementation of the odd-even scheme from November 13-17, given the high level of smog in the capital. Schools were also shut down until Sunday.
