After extracting a myriads of feedback, Chief Minister, Mr Arvind Kejriwal derived that Delhi needs odd-even traffic experiment to come back again. The 'odd-even' scheme, which was first implemented for 15 days starting January 1, will be enforced from April 15 to the end of the month said Mr Kejriwal at a press conference. Once again, women drivers and two-wheelers will be exempted from the restrictions which allow private cars with odd-numbered plates to roll on odd-numbered dates and even-numbered cars are permitted on the others.

The odd-even rule was first tested by the government in the capital after the Supreme Court ordered emergency measures to curb the toxic smog in the world's most polluted capital. Over 81 percent citizens interacted with the government through phone calls, website or neighbourhood gatherings voted in favour of the traffic rules said Mr Keriwal. The chief Minister also acknowledged a major complaint directing towards the insufficient public transport and in this regards he said "We expect 1,000 additional buses in May and another 2,000 by the end of the year."

Talking about the exemption from the rule the Chief Minister said, once again judges and other VIPs will not be covered in this scheme and hoping they will take it voluntarily. As during the first implementation, many judges cycled to to work and moreover the Chief Justice of India TS Thakur carpooled to the Supreme Court.
