The Centre on Wednesday, November 17, 2021, proposed a slew of measures in the Supreme Court including a ban on entry of all trucks in the national capital except vehicles carrying essential goods, shutting down of schools and 50 per cent attendance in offices of GNCTD to reduce air pollution in Delhi-NCR.

The issue regarding work from home for central government officers was considered but the total vehicles used for central government officers is not huge. So rather than implementing work from home, the government has issued an advisory for pooling and sharing of vehicles. The order is reproduced below

North Block, New Delhi
Dated, the 16th November, 2021


Subject: Sharing/pooling of vehicles by Central Government employees regarding.

In view of the prevailing pollution levels in the National Capital Region (NCR) all Central Government employees posted in the Central Government offices located in NCR while attending offices, are advised to use public transport, as far as possible in case where the employees are using their private vehicles/Government vehicles, it is adviseable that the vehicles are pooled in order to reduce number of vehicles on roads. It is also reiterated that all employees shall continue to strictly follow the COVID-appropriate behaviour and wear masks at all times and avoid non-essential travel. This advisory will be in force with immediate effect.
