Gupta | Published: January 18 2016 12:00 am The odd-even policy in Delhi is over Top News The much-debated odd-even trial has ended The current situation in Delhi is alarming with regard to its air quality as well as its traffic Sustainable long-term solutions need to be implemented to make quality of life better for Delhi’s residents It’s not without reason that the scientific and technical community is worried about the process and data points being used to gather usable information from this trial run for developing real solutions for the future A quick primer on air pollution is needed to understand the situation Air pollution is measured by many parameters like CO and PM25 and India has come up with an Air Quality Index (AQI) to give an aggregate sense of how bad the air is Pollution is caused by many factors including traffic construction dust burning of agricultural byproducts weather emissions from power plants and industries Even for each source only some parameters are bad and need to be properly identified For example in traffic vehicles cause most pollution when moving at very low speeds or at very high speeds So removing most vehicles to speed up the rest will increase pollution There’s very little public data available on the nature and sources of pollution leaving policymakers guessing about what to do If the objective of this trial was to ease traffic it has worked well But if we take into account the pollution angle it hasn’t The level of pollution according to most public data points indicates no impact on AQ levels A report by IIT Kanpur says the major contributing factors to air pollution are road dust (56 per cent) construction (14 per cent) industry (10 per cent) vehicles (9 per cent) burning waste and other factors (10 per cent) Among vehicles trucks are at 46 per cent two-wheelers at 33 per cent and cars at 10 per cent If we calculate the actual contribution of cars to air pollution in Delhi it would be about 1 per cent Taking into account the odd-even exemptions we still had about 60 per cent cars running daily Hence the expectation is about a 04 per cent improvement in AQ levels The first week saw a 50 per cent increase in PM25 levels — from around 240 micrograms per cubic metre in the week preceding to about 360 in that first week The Safar-Air app from the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology which tracks 10 places in Delhi/ NCR and also gives an overall AQI reading has consistently shown Delhi’s AQ as “very poor” and “severe” in the same period One major reason for the increased use of personal vehicles in Delhi has been the inadequacy of public transport Although the Delhi Metro has eased traffic for DTC buses the metro’s reach is limited With a capacity to ferry 3600000 commuters the metro runs 400000 commuters short mostly due to last-mile connectivity issues With about 165 million people living in Delhi it becomes all the more important to have a robust reliable interconnected web of public transport No city can aspire to be smart without a robust and safe public transport system A viable long-term solution should look at not disrupting economic activity and inconveniencing the travelling public People travel because they have a business purpose If everyone stopped moving all traffic problems would be gone but the city would be economically dead It’s always possible to show a marginal improvement in this area for a short period But the real challenge is to make improvements in a repeatable sustainable manner so that no special effort is needed Therefore more than just a vague rule that restricts traffic we need a solution that achieves the holistic goal of better long-term AQ These are: One encouraging and incentivising clean fuel hybrid and electric cars; two car-pooling is a good option and special zones and lanes should be created; three walking and cycling paths; four restricting construction activity in winter months and obligating contractors to keep the construction area dust-free; five vacuum-cleaning road dust; six greening unpaved parts of roads and open spaces; seven educating farmers about the hazardous effects of burning agricultural waste; eight restricting the transit of trucks through Delhi and imposing heavy fines on non-PUC trucks; and last analysing the outcome of the odd-even experiment critically and by experts The exercise should become more technically focused and go slow on the publicity hoopla Whenever a technical area such as smart cities gets the attention of politicians technical people get cautiously worried Science demands perseverance focus and methodical evaluation without consideration for egos material incentives and political correctness The odd-even experiment did bring about a much-needed debate on pollution and respiratory health But Delhi’s residents are now looking at viable and sustainable solutions Gupta an Eisenhower Fellow for Innovation currently heads the BJP’s information and
