Delhi has been a hotbed for developments over the last couple of months and very recently, CM Arvind Kejriwal has introduced and implemented the odd-even scheme.

It is just a few days since the rule has been in action and Delhi has already witnessed a significant change when it comes to the AQI levels, which were severely alarming earlier. Delhizens have shown a higher interest rate in complying with the rules this time and that has effectively reflected on the pollution parameters too.

Keeping the Sikh community in mind and to facilitate their seamless travel on Guru Nanak’s birthday, CM Kejriwal has made a thoughtful announcement.

What’s Happening?

Odd-even restrictions in Delhi will be temporarily lifted on the 11th-12th of November, to ensure hassle-free travel on the occasion of 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev. This decision has been undertaken to avoid disturbances during celebrations of Nanak’s birth anniversary and we’re applauding this obliging move.

According to reports by Business Standard, Kejriwal was quoted saying, "We respect the feelings of the Sikh community. Many Sikh organisations have approached us. We are having a discussion and a decision on it will be taken by tomorrow (Friday).”

This decision was taken after various Sikh organisations sought exemptions from the odd-even rule on November 11-12, adducing the Jayanti celebrations and other religious functions.

Initially, the Government had announced that the odd-even scheme will commence on the 4th of November and conclude on the 15th of the month.

Knock Knock

The main reason behind the implementation of the odd even-rule was to curb pollution and honestly, the air pollution levels have dipped for the better. But natural environmental forces have contributed to this development as well.

Two-wheelers, women drivers, vehicles carrying patients and school children have been exempted from the scheme. There are approximately 29 categories of exempted vehicles under this rule.
