In the wake of the poisonous smog choking the national capital, the Delhi government on Thursday decided to implement the odd-even car rationing scheme for the third time from November 13-17, 2017. Under the policy, private vehicles are allowed to run based on the last number of their licence plates.
Odd-numbered cars are allowed to run on odd dates while even-numbered cars can only run on even dates. Two wheelers will be exempted from the scheme like the last two phases of the odd-even rationing scheme. CNG-driven vehicles, battery or electric-operated vehicles and hybrid vehicles will not be under the ambit of this scheme. Vehicles of VVIPs, ambulances, fire brigades, hospital vehicles, hearse vans, Delhi Police cars, army vehicles, emergency services vehicles, and embassy vehicles will all also be allowed to ply on any day. The Delhi government has directed DTC to hire 500 buses from private contractors to tackle the rush of commuters during the odd-even implementation week. Delhi Metro will also provide 100 small buses during the period.
