New Delhi (16/10/2019): “Odd-Even Scheme: During the odd-even road rationing scheme, vehicles with registration numbers ending in an odd number are allowed to be driven on odd number dates and cars with registration numbers ending with an even number are allowed to be driven on even number dates”, revealed CM Kejriwal earlier today.
Persons with disabilities will be exempted from the rules of the odd-even road-rationing scheme, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said today. The Odd-Even scheme is set to return in the national capital for the third time from November 4-15.
Along with many other dignitaries, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal also took the stage to deliver his speech and make people realise the change Delhi has seen in past 1 decade in terms of pollution, education and other issues.
Last week, Arvind Kejriwal had announced that unlike previous occasions, this time privately-owned vehicles that run on CNG will have to comply with the odd-even scheme.
Women drivers, however, will be exempt from the restrictions, which will be enforced between November 4 to November 15 from 8 am to 8 pm. Women are exempted due to safety reasons, Mr Kejriwal had said at a press conference. “Women driving alone, cars having all women as occupants and women accompanied by children aged less than 12 years will be exempted,” he had said.
Arvind Kejriwal also announced that a decision on whether two-wheelers should be exempted from the scheme or not is yet to be taken and the government is consulting experts over it.
He also mentioned the improved cleanliness in Capital and said that even the general people have done great job to keep the city clean.
