This time the government is going to make some major changes in the Odd-Even scheme, which will be implemented from 4 to 15 November, to curb the Rising pollution in Delhi. There is also a change regarding women drivers, that means riding with a man together will be considered a violation of the rules. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal gave information about some rules on Saturday. The CM said that this time CNG vehicles are not exempted because the previous complaints of rigging in the distribution of CNG stickers were received in large numbers and misuse was also done.
This rule will also be applicable on trains coming to Delhi from other states. That is, even if someone’s car is registered in Ghaziabad, Noida, Gurgaon and runs by CNG, they will not get the discount.
In order to ensure that the commuters do not have much trouble, the CM has appealed to use car pooling and public transport. The government has also asked DTC to hire 2 thousand private buses. Keeping in mind the safety of women, women car drivers will be exempted during the odd-even but this exemption will be valid only if all the women passengers are in the car or there is a teenager below the age of 12 years. .
If a woman is driving a vehicle, but a male is riding along, it will be considered a violation of the rules. Sources reveal that under the provisions of the new Motor Vehicle Act, a fine of up to 20 thousand rupees may be imposed on the violators during odd-even this time.
