Delhi Govt. urges people to cooperate with odd-even scheme

Speaking at a press conference, Gahlot said, "The odd-even rule will be implemented from November 13 to November 17. The exemptions will be same like last time's". "I have called a meeting with representatives of Ola and Uber on Friday to ensure that there is no surge pricing during the odd-even", Gahlot said.

Gehlot has directed the DTC to hire 500 buses for the short-term, whereas DMRC has been asked to intake 300 buses, in order to tackle the rush after the odd-even is launched next week.

The plan was put in place twice for 14 days each in January and April respectively, to control the deteriorating air quality in Delhi NCR.

Under the policy, private vehicles are allowed to run based on the last number of their licence plates.

Odd-numbered cars are allowed to run on odd dates, while even-numbered vehicles can ply on even dates.

For the third straight day, Delhi and the National Capital Region clocked a "severe" level of pollution, forcing the State government to shut schools for the rest of the week, stop the entry of trucks carrying non-essential goods and temporarily ban construction activities.

"The decision taken today in the LG's meeting for taking preventive measures in severe environment conditions, would be followed in letter and spirit in the interest of the residents and the city", North Delhi Municipal Commissioner Madhup Vyas said in a statement.

He said, "Scientific management and disposal of paddy straw entails significant cost for the farmer and he naturally prefers the cheaper and easy solution of burning the crop residue".

While Kejriwal insisted on an urgent meeting with his Punjab and Haryana counterparts, Amarinder Singh said that the issue can only be solved by the Central Government. Vehicles driven or occupied by handicapped persons will also be exempt.

"IGL stickers for cars will be available from tomorrow at 22 CNG stations across Delhi".

"No one should see this problem in isolation or that it is restricted to Delhi".

"The Delhi Metro has also promised to provide 100 small buses during the period. However, there will be no compulsion", Gahlot said.
