"Today, the Supreme Court has given some orders which we will study. But everybody needs to play his own part in abetting pollution and mitigating the pollution problem and elsewhere," Javadekar told media.

"But most important thing is that euro 4 standard be applicable throughout the country from 2017. From 2019 euro 5 (Bharat 5) and from 2021 euro 6 (Bharat 6) will come into force. That means government would be spending more than Rs. 60,000 crores in that venture and vehicle manufacturers will have to manufacture vehicles accordingly. That is going to be the real game changer," he added.

The Minister also announced that two bypasses would be constructed in the national capital within next 24 months. "People also need to participate by following lane disciplines, by maintaining their vehicles, by using cycles for nearby work, by using more public transport and avoiding congested lanes. By this joint effort we will win the war against pollution," Javadekar cited.

The Supreme Court earlier today banned the registration of all diesel vehicles with over 2000 cc capacity in Delhi-NCR till March 31, 2016.
