NGT rejects AAP govt plea to exempt two-wheelers from odd-even 15.12.2017 The Tribune
New Delhi, December 15 The National Green Tribunal on Friday dismissed the Aam Aadmi Party government's review plea seeking exemption for two-wheelers in odd-even scheme saying such relaxation would defeat the purpose of improving Delhi's ambient air quality. "It is undisputed before us that there are over 60 lakh two-wheelers in Delhi. The number also consists of two- wheelers which are very old and their emissions are beyond prescribed limits," a Bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar said. "It also cannot be disputed that emissions from two- wheelers are also a major source of pollution. The exemptions sought would defeat the entire purpose of improving the air quality of Delhi," it said. Under the scheme, odd-numbered vehicles can use the roads on odd-numbered days, and likewise even-numbered vehicles on even days. The green panel also directed the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) to introduce more buses in its fleet as per the Supreme Court order and strengthen the public transport ...

New FTP has given meaningful context to T20s: BCCI CEO Rahul Johri 15.12.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) CEO Rahul Johri is confident that the proposed Future Tours Programme (FTP) will give "meaningful context" to bilateral T20 Internationals -- a marked departure from the usual one-off matches. Johri presented a proposed FTP that has 81 international matches at home in the next five-year cycle, including 27 T20s. India will play 53 T20 Internationals in this phase which includes 26 away matches as well. "We discussed with everybody and the feedback that we got was that one-off T20 means nothing. If there is a contest, there has to be context. And that is why, having meaningful T20 International contests is an approach that we have taken," said Johri.   His team has worked for months on the freshly-chalked FTP, which requires an ICC approval. With India's lucrative home TV broadcast rights deal set to come up in March 2018, the CEO is confident of a windfall like the IPL where Star India bought the rights for 16,347 crore. "We have put together a balanced FTP ...
