Kejriwal: Odd-even can’t be permanent

On January 1, Kejriwal stated that the even-odd vehicle rationing scheme is not something that can be implemented on a permanent basis. He made this statement just hours after the success of the first day of the scheme which is on a 15 day trial period.

Kejriwal said that implementing this scheme permanently may not happen. He said that these tactics will be used temporarily as a measure to quickly cut down on pollution levels. He further added that the decision to whether or not this move will be continued will be taken after January 15.

He told reporters that the response he received for the government’s ambitious even odd plan on the first day was quite overwhelming. He added that the people of Delhi have accepted this move with open heart and they have successfully done it. After receiving such overwhelming response, Kejriwal said that he hopes Delhi will show the way to the rest of the country.

According to the scheme, only cars with odd number registration can be on city roads on odd number days. If a car with even number plates is taken out into city roads, there will be a penalty of Rs 2,000 as per the Motor Vehicles Act.

Kejriwal has an odd numbered car and he used his car to go to office on January 1. Setting an example, he also took his two ministers – Transport Minister Gopal Rai and Health Minister Satyendar Jain along.

Manish Sisodia, the deputy of Kejriwal said that he will go to his office on a cycle. He said that he also has a car with odd number and so he will use it on odd days. He said that on even days, he will go to Delhi secretariat on cycle. Other ministers are also following suit to help set an example.
