A special bench of the Supreme Court will continue hearing the petition by 17-year-old Delhi student Aditya Dubey concerning rising levels of air pollution in the Capital.
During the previous hearing on Monday, the Top Court directed the government to hold an emergency meeting and report on steps to control pollution by Tuesday evening.
The Bench had also come down heavily on the Delhi government for giving "lame excuses" with regard to tackling the air pollution that is choking the capital.
Pursuant to the top court's order, the Centre and States of Punjab and Haryana filed affidavits before the top court setting out their stance.
A Bench of Chief Justice of India NV Ramana and Justices DY Chandrachud and Surya Kant will hear the plea.
