He further said that in a survey conducted after the first round of odd-even scheme from January 1 to 15, people asked government not to give exemption to Union Ministers.

“As we had kept Central government ministers out of the first phase of odd-even scheme, we will also continue with exemption to these ministers during the second phase of this scheme,” Rai said.

The transport minister, however, said Delhi Chief Minister and his cabinet ministers will come under ambit of the scheme.

A senior official said that government may consider to exempt senior citizens from the second phase of odd-even scheme following their demands in this regard.

Before implementation of the first round of odd-even scheme, senior citizens had approached the government to keep them out of the ambit of the scheme.
