Odd-even back in Delhi after Diwali | Delhi News

NEW DELHI: Delhi government announced on Friday that the odd-even scheme would be implemented in the national capital from November 4 to 15.
Under the scheme, odd and even numbered vehicles ply on alternate days.
At a press conference in Delhi, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said that reducing pollution was the goal of his government.
The chief minister announced his seven-point action plan to tackle pollution due to crop burning, which includes distribution of masks, mechanised sweeping of roads, tree plantation, and special plans for 12 pollution hot spots in the city.
“This is the AAP government’s winter action plan to tackle pollution in Delhi ahead of winters,” Kejriwal said. The implementation of odd-even is a part of the seven-point plan to tackle pollution in Delhi.
The chief minister also mentioned the ‘route rationalisation’ plan to improve frequency of buses. He further mentioned that bus-stands will soon be modernised and will have arrival status of the buses.
On electric-vehicle policy, Kejriwal stated that it will be notified soon hoping that people will make a shift towards e-vehicles.
The Delhi chief minister also spoke on the new traffic challans: “I’ve talked to many people. We all want traffic situation to improve. We want to stop the accidents on roads. We all know how much traffic is indisciplined in Delhi. We have to agree that traffic situation has been improved after the new rule. We are monitoring the rule and if there’s any clause which needs to be modified and Delhi government has the authority to overlook it, then we’ll have a look at it.”
“Odd-even is just an emergency measure. It can’t be continued for a very longer duration,” Kejriwal said.
“There has been a significant improvement in the compliance of traffic rules in Delhi since the implementation of the amended Motor Vehicle Act. The enforcement of traffic rules has become easy. We will try to reduce the traffic fines that are causing incovenience to the common man in Delhi,” Kejriwal added.
