New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday announced the blue print for the implementation of odd-even formula of allowing cars on the roads of Delhi.
While announcing the salient points of the rule, he said it would be implemented from January 1 to January 15 and its notification will be issued on Monday. He said all the approvals have been secured for the implementation. He sought support of people, saying without their help, it would not be of any use.
He also said that completely doing away with cars cannot be a practical solution for pollution reduction as it would exert pressure on public transport. He said people should resort to car-pooling. He also said that car-pooling shouldn’t be done with strangers.
Here are the important pointers of the odd-even formula
Rs. 2000 fine will be imposed on people who will break the rule
Emergency vehicles like ambulance, fire, hospital, prison, hearse, enforcement vehicles will be exempted.
Vehicles of the President, Vice President, PM, Speaker of Lok Sabha, Deputy Chairman of Rajya Sabha, governors of states are also exempted
The rule will be in effect from 8 am to 8 pm
Cars with only women travellers will be exempted from rule
Cars of other states coming to Delhi will also come under the ambit of the rule
Rule doesn’t apply on 2-wheelers: Kejriwal
2-wheelers may be included in phase 2 of the scheme: Kejriwal
CNG driven vehicles also exempted
10,000 volunteers will help us in encouraging people to leave their cars home by maybe giving them roses: Kejriwal
