Private cars with licence plates ending with 0,2,4,6,8 will be allowed to ply on the capital’s roads Monday, when the odd-even scheme will be implemented in the city for the third time since 2016.
Earlier, even electric and hybrid vehicles were kept under the ambit of the rule. On Sunday, the transport department exempted e-vehicles. The scheme will be applicable to vehicles from other states.
Under the scheme, vehicles bearing number plates ending with odd numbers can be taken out on odd-numbered days and vice-versa. The emergency measure, mandated under the Graded Response Action Plan, will be enforced till November 15.
CM Arvind Kejriwal appealed to people to follow the rules: “We are implementing it from tomorrow from 8 am-8 pm. I request you all to follow the rules… I, and Delhi Cabinet ministers, will also follow them.” However, BJP Rajya Sabha MP Vijay Goel said he will take out his car tomorrow to protest the “odd-even drama”.
Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot briefed civil defence volunteers, who will be deployed across the city for the scheme.
“Delhi Police has identified 200 traffic points… Challans will be issued on the spot,” a police statement said.
