Not a wise decision: Delhi government's new vehicle policy not welcomed by people

New Delhi: On social media, the Delhi government's new decision to allow odd and even number vehicles (#DelhiOddEvenLogic) to ply on city road on alternate days, from January 1 drew more flak from the citizens than appreciation.




People believe promoting the public transport would have been a much better step towards curbing the city's rising pollution.




They said the creation of new zones where only public transport could be allowed and not the private vehicles would have served the purpose in a much better way.




At a meeting, the decision was taken by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and will not apply to CNG-driven buses, taxis and auto-rickshaws. But will cover vehicles entering Delhi from other states.




The sweeping move (like the one taken in Beijing in 2013) will apply to a large bulk of the some 90 lakh vehicles registered in Delhi.




It is pertinent to mention here that about 1,500 new vehicles are added in Delhi, every day.

Many of the city dwellers also suggested that the new policy would increase their expenditure for travelling.

Youngsters believe the new decision would lead to illegal activities such as bribery to traffic police and possession of multiple number plates.
