New Delhi: In view of improvement in the city's air quality, the Delhi government on Monday lifted various bans, imposed earlier, including the ban on the entry of trucks into the national capital.
The primary schools will be reopened from Wednesday, which were shut down as the Air Quality in Delhi went from bad to worse. Curbs on outdoor activities for secondary school students will also be lifted from Wednesday.
Addressing a press conference on Monday, Delhi Environment Minister Gopal Rai said that the ban on entry of trucks into the national capital would be partially lifted and directions for work from home and for government offices have been amended.
Last week, the Aam Aadmi Party announced a mandatory 50% work-from-home for government offices, and a similar advisory was issued for private offices, which has been revoked now.
Curbs on BS III petrol vehicles and BS IV diesel vehicles will still continue in Delhi. Gopal Rai said the ban was imposed under Stage III of the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP); and that it won't be lifted yet.
"However, the ban on private demolition and construction work will continue," Gopal Rai said. (Agencies)
