Delhi: AAP government re-introduces ‘Odd-Even rule’ in the capital for the third time

According to the reports, the Delhi government made the decision after Chief Minister Kejriwal met experts to discuss ways to contain winter-time pollution in the capital.

The Delhi government led by Arvind Kejriwal on Friday has announced to reintroduce the controversial ‘Odd-Even rule’ in Delhi from November 4 to 15.

According to the reports, the Delhi government made the decision after Chief Minister Kejriwal met experts to discuss ways to contain winter-time pollution in the capital. It is reported that he received a positive response from these experts on the odd-even formula, which has been implemented by the government twice earlier in 2016 and in 2017.

Addressing a press conference, Kejriwal announced a seven-point action plan to combat pollution due to crop burning. “We also call upon people not to burst crackers during Diwali,” he said, adding that the AAP government will organise a laser show a day before Diwali.

Under the odd-even scheme, cars with licence plates ending in an odd number and even number are allowed to ply on alternate days. The scheme implemented the first time in 2016 got into controversies over exemptions granted to various categories of vehicles.

The Odd-Even scheme of the Arvind Kejriwal initially received a mixed response as Delhi citizens despite hardship joined hands with the Delhi government to fight the menace of the pollution. As the AAP government failed to implement the scheme in a better way, resulting in too many exemptions, it received a cold response from the citizens of Delhi when the government re-introduced the scheme in 2017.
