In an attempt to reduce traffic congestion and tackle pollution, the odd-even scheme was enforced in the national capital from November 4 to 15. The traffic rationing scheme prohibited plying of private vehicles based on the last digit of their registration numbers. Vehicles with even digits were only allowed to ply on even dates, and those with odd numbers on odd dates.
This was the third edition of the odd-even restrictions, a flagship scheme of the AAP government, on private vehicles in Delhi. The first two versions of the initiative were introduced in 2016.(ANI)
