Capital of India Delhi, it is very important to reduce the pollution from the air. Delhi pollution rate is not only exceeding the line but it exceeds the danger line of pollution. The new year gift for Delhi is to control the pollution, and the Delhi government introduced the odd even formula to reduce the pollution. These type of policies should be introduced otherwise is will going to kill Delhi very soon.
A pollution-free Delhi is a dream we all love, but when it comes to doing something about it, we all back out and find some excuse or the other to not restrict our daily luxuries which could cut down pollution levels and make the city better for all of us.
Very recently, in March 2014, Paris experimented with this idea. According to The Guardian newspaper, “The French government reacted to dangerous levels of pollution by requiring cars with license plates ending with even numbers to stay off the road. Nearly 4,000 fines were issued to drivers who flaunted the restrictions.” This helped in controlling pollution.
