New Delhi: Asserting that handling the implementation of the odd-even formula in the nation capital was not a major challenge, Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi on Wednesday said that the public should not worry too much about the new scheme.
“This is not something incredible or a herculean task, nor are we hassled. We are not too worried about it and neither should the public. Now the police will have to ensure that odd number cars don’t run on even days and vice versa,” Bassi told the media here.
He added that the Delhi Police will be aiming to ensure that no mega jams occur during the 15-day trial period of the odd-even formula.
“The fine is 2000 rupees if you do not follow the odd-even formula. In the 15 days when the scheme is implemented, we will be extra cautious on peak hours,” Bassi added.
Meanwhile, the US Embassy in the national capital has extended its full support to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s scheme and said it will comply with all the restrictions.
The odd and even car number formula will be applied here on a trial basis for 15 days starting from January 1, 2016. (ANI)
