Air pollution level rises 23% in Delhi during odd-even 2.0
The second phase of the odd-even scheme in the national capital ended up at a bad note, as Delhi's air quality saw a rise of nearly 23 per cent in pollution levels.

According to the reports the PM 2.5 and PM 10 concentration in the city's air were 63.98 and 134.39 per cubic meter respectively. 

Another findings of the report said that the pollution was at it worst at 7:00 am in the morning, which causes respiratory illness on prolonged exposure. Similarly, the timing of 5 pm is recorded as the best hour during the odd-even phase, as per a report by  

All these findings clearly show that this scheme cannot work in the long run, without an additional action. Delhi Government has to work a lot to make the scheme work, like improving the bus services, curbing factory and truck emissions etc.

If we see the odd-even trend across the world, it shows that initially the scheme reduces pollution.But once the rule becomes permanent, people go for another vehicle with alternate number, which does not serve the cause.
