Odd-even car restriction is one rule that many nations have been following since the 90’s and now seeing the current scenario, this rule needs implementation in Delhi as soon as possible, as the pollution level in the city broke all records in the recent past.
The rule suggests odd and even numbered vehicles hitting the roads on alternate days. This will not only help control pollution level in the city but will also help cease the annoying problem of traffic that we all face each day.
However, CM Arvind Kejriwal has made it very clear that this rule will first come into action on a temporary basis and if it causes any kind of trouble, it will be ruled out. It will be implemented from January 1st, 2016.
“Let’s try the odd-even car formula for at least a few days, 10-15 days to start with. If there are a lot of problems, we can stop it and learn from the failure. We don’t want to cause any inconvenience to the public.” said Arvind Kejriwal at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit.
Along with this, vacuum cleaning of roads and greening of sidewalks is also a part of the plan as it is definitely going to take a lot of efforts to make Delhi pollution free.
Premature deaths is a very harsh consequence of air pollution prevailing every year in the world. Delhi government is doing its job but everyone else as an individual needs to take charge and do their bit to make the Capital a pollution free city.
