Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra has agreed to give urgent hearing to a PIL seeking steps to curb rising pollution in Delhi-NCR, with the CJI saying the problem cannot be ignored.

The Supreme Court has pulled up the Centre and the Delhi government on rising air pollution in the national capital, observing that it’s an emergency-like situation. The Delhi government has filed a review petition with the National Green Tribunal for allowing exemption to women and two-wheeler riders in the proposed return of the odd-even car rationing plan. It has contended that bringing women drivers into the odd-even ambit would pose a security risk, while barring two-wheelers would add to the burden of the public transport system.

Will the NGT allow these exemptions? Stay tuned for LIVE updates:
