The traffic plan was announced on a day the Delhi High Court said there was an "emergency situation" vis-a-vis pollution in Delhi-NCR and asked the Delhi government to consider implementing cloud seeding to induce artificial rain apart from vehicle rationing on roads.
Under this scheme, vehicles are allowed to run across the city, based on their registration numbers. For example, if a vehicle’s registration number ends with an odd digit, it will be allowed on the road on November 13, while those ending with an even number can be driven on November 14, and so on. For example, on 13, 15 and 17 November you can only drive a vehicle whose registration number ends in an odd digit while vehicles with even numbers could be driven on 14 November and 16 November.
Odd-even rule exemptions:
There is a list of people and specific vehicles that have been exempted from the scheme. School children in uniform will be exempted from the ‘Odd-even rule’ in this third phase. Arvind Kejriwal-led govt has exempted women from the odd-even rule in its first and second phase that continues to be the same this time too. Among chief ministers, only Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal is not exempt from the scheme. Emergency vehicles like ambulances are exempt. Further, CNG vehicles are also excused. Like the last time, two-wheelers are not within the ambit of the scheme. Also, commercial vehicles, bearing yellow number plates, will not come under it.
When clueless, pull out a ghisa-pita, failed-idea yet again: like silly old #even-odd when smog is coming not from cars, but road-dust and stubble-burning. Dilliwalas are crybabies, so shove a soother in their mouths and shut them up— Shekhar Gupta (@ShekharGupta) November 9, 2017
Stunning failure of governments to respond to emergency. Again, token steps like #OddEven, sprinkling water on trees. Construction goes on unchecked, MLAs burning crop stubble, trucks run unchecked, netas pass the buck. Depressing— Abhijit Majumder (@abhijitmajumder) November 9, 2017

Those who criticize ODD EVEN by saying it a small step, don't know about the pious intentions behind it. @ArvindKejriwal knows such a small step would help ppl know about small things, can be done to beat pollution.#ISupportOddEven pic.twitter.com/A70isGoaBO— Mubarak H Sheikh (@MubarakHSheikh) November 10, 2017

A few day back, MLA of Chandni Chawk @LambaAlka had shown us live how traffic police & MCD mismanage traffic.— Mubarak H Sheikh (@MubarakHSheikh) November 10, 2017
To succeed in our ODD EVEN formula, we need proper attention to be paid to the execution of the scheme.
