Delhi, get ready to combat pollution with the Odd-Even scheme once again, this November

Delhi's Odd-Even rule that comes in place once every year is making a comeback again in 2019. Initially a move that was condemned, it reaped some promising results that has led to an improvement in Delhi's air and brought about a change in the traffic condition in the city. On the whole, the Odd-Even rule has been rather multifaceted. This time it's making a comeback from November 04 to November 15, here's all you need to know about it.

What's the update?

First implemented in 2015, the rule has come a long way. Tackling air pollution and Delhi's declining traffic condition, it is one that helps the city as a whole.

Though there are naysayers about the same move, this is one rule that actually benefits Delhi and its residents. As per previous reports, air pollution during odd-even implementation has gone down by 10 to 13%.

How does it work?

How the Odd-Even rule functions is that owners of vehicles must first identify their registration numbers and the last digit will determine whether your vehicle is fit for usage on a given day. On one day, only vehicles with numbers that end with odd numbers will be allowed on roads, while on other days, vehicles that end with even numbers will ply on roads.

Though the basic premise of the rule is rather simple, it is one that can actually prove to be very beneficial, depending on how successful the implementation is.

Owing to this, it should technically cut down the number of vehicles on city roads by half. However, this is not exactly true because many people tend to bring out their vehicles anyway.

What alternatives do Delhiites have?

At its core, this is one move that focuses on keeping Delhi's air pollution free, urges more people to use public transport and pushes forward an idea of a more streamlined and less crowded Delhi.

To get from one place to another, people are urged to carpool with others make use of Delhi Metro or the extensive and well connected DTC bus routes that are extremely useful for travelling the innards of Delhi.

Since odd even rule will be implemented post Diwali from November 04 to November 15, we can safely say that the air will indeed be in for some purification.

Have you ever been running late to the airport because of the sheer number of bags you have? If your answer is yes, then IGI airport has got you covered. Now, in a new initiative by the DIAL (Delhi International Airport Ltd) you can have your stuff transported to the IGI airport directly from your place of stay.

Delhi International Airport Ltd., the operators of IGI airport have partnered up with a Bengaluru based company called CarterX. In fact, this facility is not limited to be availed by only those taking off from Delhi, it can also be used to get your luggage delivered to your residence when you touchdown at IGI.

What's the update?

In a bid to make travelling to and from IGI airport easier for passengers, DIAL has undertaken a partnership with CarterX to start a service where a commuter's luggage can be transported to and from the IGI airport directly from their place of residence. This, essentially, is a step towards making checking in to the airport a breeze.

Additionally, if you're short on time and are planning to take the direct metro link to the airport, this is a great way to ensure that you don't have to lug your stuff around.

To avail the service, you will have to pay a fee based on the number, weight and size of the bags. The fee will also take into account distance to and from the airport, meaning the prices are going to be dynamically triggered.

This is certainly one of the most passenger forward moves we have seen DIAL take. The IGI airport is at par with the best airports in the world and this is something that should take its rating all the way up. DIAL and CarterX have both stated that with this service, they aim to cover the entirety of Delhi, including neighbouring states- Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.
