The Delhi government has decided to bring back the infamous odd-even rule to control traffic pollution ahead of winter. The odd-even scheme will be implemented in Delhi for a short period between November 4th and 15th.
According to this rule, motorists in Delhi can drive cars which end with odd and even numbers on alternate days. This has worked out in the past for Delhi, and the city has seen a noticeable decrease in pollution.
Emergency vehicles and women drivers are excluded from this rule for safekeeping. The odd-even scheme was implemented in Delhi back in 2016. Ever since, the scheme has received mixed reactions from the public.
Arvind Kejriwal, Chief Minister, said that the odd-even rule would not be applicable on the weekends. The odd-even rule can only be implemented for a limited time frame, as it would be a hassle if enforced for a longer time.
Delhi is the world's most polluted capital according to research. Major contributors of pollution are vehicles, industries, smoke from burning garbage, and crop residue in nearby fields. The government has plans to prepare for the pollution through a seven-point action plan.
Arvind Kejriwal however said that the pollution has reduced by 25 per cent, and that Delhi is the only state to where the pollution is decreasing. With this Delhi will also introduce 1,000 electric buses to support green mobility, and reduce pollution.
The odd-even rule was first implemented in Rome back in 2014. The pollution levels were high enough for the government to ban cars on the streets. Implementation of the odd-even rule had a great impact towards reducing pollution, and maintaining a healthy environment.
The government has also urged citizens of Delhi to not burst fire crackers during Diwali. Inturn the government will organize a free laser show to promote the Diwali festival.
Thoughts About The Odd-Even Scheme Returning To Delhi
Delhi is one of the most polluted cities in the world and has faced major issues with pollution over the last few years. The Odd-Even scheme should stay as a temporary solution until the city moves towards electric mobility. Having said that, we're thoroughly entertained by Arvind Kejriwal!
