NEW DELHI : The Arvind Kejriwal’s government on Thursday announced the return of the odd even plan from November 13 to 17 as air quality in the Capital worsened for the third straight day.
This is the third time that Delhi will try the radical road-rationing scheme during which private cars with even- and odd-numbered plates ply on alternate days.
Top officials of the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), however, questioned the timing of the plan, suggesting the emergency measure may not be required any longer because weather conditions would improve from Friday, clearing the toxic haze that has engulfed Delhi since Monday night.
