Odd-Even phase II: Cars carrying school students to be exempted

New Delhi : Deputy Chief Minister Mnaish Sisodia on Wednesday said the cars carrying school students would be exempted during the Odd-Even phase II, which is returning in the national capital from April 15.

“Cars carrying student(s) in school uniform shall be exempted during #oddeven starting 15th April,” Sisodia tweeted.

Women are also likely to be exempted during the formulae to be implemented from April 15 to 30.

Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal urged Transport Minister Gopal Rai to exempt women, saying the public transport system was not in a good shape.

The Delhi High Court has backed the scheme, saying that the Odd-Even scheme of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Government was a success to some extent as the idea had appealed to the people.

A final decision on the exemption will be taken today after a coordination committee constituted by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal submits its report to the Cabinet.

Under the scheme, odd-numbered cars are only allowed to ply on odd dates while even-numbered vehicle are allowed to run only on even dates. (ANI)
