New Delhi: On Sunday, both even and odd number plate cars can ply on Delhi roads, said Satyendra Kumar Jain, Delhi Home Minister, on Monday.

The decision is taken as the traffic is less on Sunday and so that the parents can take their children out for shopping, he said and added, the Delhi government has also requested DTC and Metro to increase the number of trips so that the commuters do not face any problem.

It is pertinent to mention here that outlining the contours of its ambitious plan to curb pollution through odd-even number plate formula, Delhi government had said odd-numbered cars will be allowed to ply on Monday, Wednesday and Friday while even-numbered vehicles will run on the other days – Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Delhi Home Minister Satyendra Jain had also said the government will only allow emergency vehicles like PCR van, fire tenders, ambulances on the roads of the national capital, daily.
