Auto sales in India grew a record 31 percent in 2010, driven by a burgeoning middle class in Asia's third-largest economy, but tougher comparisons, a likely hike in interest rates, and rising fuel and vehicles costs are expected to slow sales growth this year.

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court will today hear the state government’s reply after it asked the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)-led Government to present the data on change in the pollution-level to ascertain if the Odd-Even scheme has been successful.

The High Court on Wednesday had asked the Delhi Government as to why the Odd-Even trial should last for more than a week.

Responding to the High Court’s question, the Delhi Government had said that the Odd-Even formula was working and was well received by the people.

The odd-even scheme was launched January 1 to curb alarming rise in vehicular pollution. (ANI)
