The odd-even rule initiated by the Delhi Government w.e.f. 1st January, 2016 has been borrowed from some Chinese cities. The rule is very simple. There is a registration number of every car. If the number is even, it will ply only on every alternate day. Similarly, the cars with odd registration number will ply on other alternate days. As for example, if the cars with even numbers ply on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, then the odd numbered cars will ply on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Then from Sunday, the sequence will again be repeated.
This system has been mooted to reduce the number of cars on the road and to control vehicular pollution and traffic jam. However, the Government vehicles, ambulances, etc. have been exempted. But, till now, the scheme has not been very successful.
Beware! I question everything and everybody.
