Seeking people’s opinion on six main aspects of the odd-even scheme, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Monday said the next phase will be launched only after receiving the feedback.

“Many people have been asking us when we will bring odd-even back. To do this, we need to systematically seek people’s opinion on the scheme. From Tuesday, we will seek structured feedback on our email and also issue advertisements inviting ideas from people.”

Kejriwal, who was speaking at the state level Republic Day celebrations at Chhatrasal Stadium, also asked people to send their suggestions to oddevenidea@gmail.com.

“We want people to tell us whether or not they want odd-even to return, if yes then when — February 14, March 1, April 1, May 1; for how many days should it be implemented — 15 days or 30 days; 15 days every month or permanent; whether or not they will buy a second car if odd-even returns; whether the exemptions granted under the scheme need to be reviewed, and other suggestions,” he said.

Kejriwal added that MLAs will hold meetings in the city’s 70 Assembly constituencies on February 6 and 7 to get feedback from people. “Earlier, many had said people will go against the AAP for implementing odd-even. But we knew people will accept it because we did not formulate the policy sitting in AC rooms. We asked people how to implement it. I salute the people of Delhi for making it successful,” he said.

The AAP government has attributed the “success” of the first phase mainly to people’s determination to make it work. “In other countries where odd-even was implemented, it was seen that about three to five per cent of people opted to buy new cars. Everywhere else it was unpopular. But the odd-even experiment in Delhi was unique. What people say about it will be an eye-opener for us,” said Kejriwal.

The CM added that during odd-even, Metro services saw an increased traffic of about 0.4 per cent and bus services saw a 7 per cent increase in ridership.

      Please don't try to wriggle out of your commitment to court by putting it in people's lap. First present the report (several bodies) of the pollution trends during the Jan-1-15 experiment. We will not allow the narrative to become 'traffic management' in place of pollution control ...

              I think it would be best to start it again. The fine which is taken from people should be used in making the roads better and promoting cycle.

                  Odd Even is a great going. Has disciplined the Delhi locals. However, to acclaim that the system is a success in a two weeks trail is a bit too early. Real measure would be after a period of 3 months.This period would be able to establish a Benchmark of requirements, for the Police officials, Infrastructure , the Transport, the Environment and various agencies involved. This system has to sustain over a long period and show success and improvement
