The last phase of GRAP may be implemented, what will be the restrictions
As per CAQM, the final phase of GRAP will be implemented on the basis of AQI forecast. That status doesn’t appear right now. Apart from pollution forecast, information about AQI forecast is issued by IITM Pune. This possibility holds for the next two days. For example, in the AQI forecast released on Tuesday, the AQI forecast for October 2 and 3 has been issued. According to this, the AQI of the capital on Wednesday can be around 350 and on November 3, around 325. In such a situation, the last phase of GRAP is not being implemented at present. This AQI forecast will be implemented when the AQI is expected to go to 450 or more.

Will there be restrictions in the last phase of Grap?

– Only trucks carrying essential goods will be able to come to the capital (Exemption to CNG and electric trucks)

– Medium and large trucks running on diesel will not be able to run (exemption to trucks connected with the supply of essential goods)
