The Delhi government has lifted the ban on construction and demolition activities in view of an improvement in the air quality, Environment Minister Gopal Rai said on Monday.

Rai said the government would take a call on the reopening of schools, and work-from-home for government staff on November 24.

“We will also discuss if CNG-operated trucks carrying non-essential items can be allowed to enter Delhi,” he said.

The Delhi government on Sunday night extended the ban on the entry of trucks carrying non-essential items and work-from-home for its employees till November 26 to combat air pollution and minimise its health effects. PTI
