In order to clean Delhi's toxic air, the AAP government's odd-even rule for cars began at 8 am on New Year's Day.
As per the plan, only odd numbered cars will be allowed on the roads today. Those found violating odd-even rules will have to cough up Rs 2,000.


The scheme has been started today from 8 am to 8 pm on a trial basis for fifteen days. However, the rule will not apply on Sundays.

As per the plan, odd-numbered cars will be allowed to run on odd dates while even-numbered vehicles can only ply on even dates.

Even, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his Cabinet ministers have decided to carpool to work. Kejriwal will share his car with Transport Minister Gopal Rai and PWD Minister Satyendar Jain.

The Delhi government has come up with two helplines - 011-42400400 and 011-41400400 - for people to register their complaints and suggestion in connection with the odd-even scheme.

In order to ensure strict implementation of the scheme, 200 teams of Delhi Traffic Police, 66 enforcement teams of transport department and 40 teams of sub-divisional magistrates have been deployed.

 Around 125 teams of Transport department and Revenue department have been deployed during the 15-day road-rationing plan so that the scheme could be effectively implemented.

Transport Minister Gopal Rai on Thursday appealed to Delhiites to make the scheme a success as the move will clear Delhi's polluted air for children, and said despite the alleged "conspiracy" by the BJP, it will be "successful".

A dry run for the odd-even plan was held on Friday, during which agencies tried to analyse the situation and loopholes in odd-even plan.
