Gurgaon to have cars off the roads on every Tuesday

A few weeks ago, Beijing was to host a huge parade and the Government took extra special effort to ensure that the city enjoyed a clear, pollution free atmosphere. So they closed down the factories, took the cars off the roads for a while. The result of this exercise was this...

This photo shows two images of the view from CNN's Beijing Bureau, one of a blue sky day from a week before the military parade and one of a hazy sky the day after the parade.
Beijing, before and after the pollution free days

I read somewhere that Gurgaon has taken the initiative to go car free every Tuesday. Why cannot we replicate this same model all across the country? Can u imagine what it would do to the pollution levels?
