From January 1 to January 15, every car entering Delhi will have to follow the odd-even registration number rule as the government sets out to implement an idea to reduce congestion on roads and pollution from vehicle emission. The odd-even rule will also apply to cars with NCR and other states’ registration numbers, official sources told The Indian Express.

A notification to this effect is being readied. It also lists over 20 categories of vehicles which will be exempted from the rule. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is likely to spell out Thursday his government’s decisions on exemption, inclusion of vehicle categories.

The rule will be applicable from 8 am to 8 pm on all days except Sunday.

Proposing a Rs 2,000 fine for every violation of the odd-even rule, the Delhi government, in line with provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act, has sought the Lt Governor’s authorisation for officials to issue challans.

      Why vehicles with high occupancy are not exempted from this rule? If 2 people are carpooling then they should be allowed. How a family of 4 people will travel now?

                    Kejri is a drama King. He should get some sort of award from Bollywood. There is no one in Bollywood who can match Kejri.

                      The funniest part of the exemptions to the odd even rule is that Women,women drivers with a male child upto the age of 12 are exempted. What about female child accompanying mother, and should the woman driver carry age proof of the male child? Mr. Kejri, what is all this? I doubt the mental status of the delhi govt specially of the CM.

                        There will be lot of confusions I suppose. Pollutions could be mitigated by introducing easy check systems as 3-in-1 car policy for certain hours say peak hours, car free days, enciurage CNG vehicles, introduce environment friendly buses rtc.

                            Excellent experiment. Once it starts, people will start supporting automatically. Human nature is to protest each and every experiment. Kudos to AK for taking this decision as need guts to put a decision in the state where bjp's LG already present.

                                    The odd and even number plate system is going to fail, as India does not access to the database of cars registered at the finger tips for each policeman, to verify the plate to the car to the owner. You can paint two sets of plates and use them in odd and even manner, or if caught the corrupt Delhi policeman is there to help.

                                          Who are the other polluters, they should also be covered. All electrical and hybrids vehicles should receive special treatment. Buses should be changed to hybrids or better electrical.

                                            Exceptionally simple and humanitarian. It is really difficult for others to emulate him.
