AAP govt. calls off odd-even rule for now in Delhi

In surprising move, Delhi's Kejriwal government on Saturday afternoon withdrew the Odd-Even scheme and will move the National Green Tribunal on Monday saying government isn’t ready with public transport. It also cited security of women as they are not exempted from the scheme this time.

The government's decision was taken after senior AAP leaders convened an emergency cabinet meeting following the green court criticism.

The National Green Tribunal on Saturday had given a go ahead to the odd-even vehicle rationing scheme from November 13-17 and said there will be no exemption for women, two-wheelers and government vehicles.

AAP officials said the security of women is a big issue and will approach the NGT to give women exemption from the Odd-Even scheme.
NGT had said that in future the odd-even scheme will automatically come into force if the PM2.5 level goes above 300 and PM10 crosses the 500 mark.

The NGT had also asked the Delhi government to reconsider the decision on hiking parking fees.
