The Supreme Court will consider on Tuesday how its various earlier orders can be implemented for effective action to control pollution after Environment Pollution (Prevention and Control) Authority for National Capital Region (EPCA) said the severe smog episode in the Capital must be treated as a public health emergency.

Pointing out that the government has failed in strict enforcement of its orders to combat pollution, EPCA told a bench headed by Chief Justice TS Thakur that Delhi has got worst smog in 17 years and there is a “need for short-term emergency action and strict enforcement of the SC directions.”
