Delhi all set for Odd-Even third round to combat toxic air

In a bid to combat the toxic air in the national capital, which is expected to shoot up Diwali. the Delhi government is all set to reintroduce Odd-Even road rationing scheme. The scheme will come into force from November 4 and will continue till November 15. 

With the air quality in several parts of the city already touching ‘very poor’ mark the government has indicated that restrictions on vehicles will be similar to those imposed in the first round of the scheme it had implemented in January 2016 for a duration of 15 days.

The government on Thursday come with some more details on traffic rules to be in force for a period of 12 days. 

The “Odd-Even scheme will be implemented from November 4 to 15. Vehicles coming from other states entering Delhi will also come under its purview. However, non-transport four-wheelers and two-wheelers will be exempt from the scheme,” said Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

The government said the odd-even rules would be applicable in Delhi from 8 am to 8 pm, except on Sundays. The government has also made it clear that any violation of the traffic rules would incur a fine of Rs 4,000. In its first edition of odd-even scheme, the fine against violation of traffic rules was fixed at Rs 2,000.

This is the third time that the odd-even rule will come into force in Delhi,

Ministers in Delhi government, including the chief minister, will abide by the odd-even scheme as the chief minister has made it clear that all the ministers of his cabinet will follow the restrictions of the scheme.

Vehicles entering in Delhi from outside will also have to adhere to this rule. So, if you are coming to Delhi from Noida, Gurgaon or Faridabad, the rule will apply to you as well. Bikes will, however, be exempt from rule.
