New Delhi, April 13 (IANS) The odd-even vehicle scheme could be enforced for a fortnight every month in the national capital if the second phase beginning from April 15 is also a success, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Wednesday.
“The second phase of the odd-even scheme is very important. If it turns out to be successful, we are thinking of implementing it for 15 days every month,” Kejriwal said.
He was speaking at a function held at the Indira Gandhi indoor stadium here to administer oath to officials and civil defence volunteers, Delhi Transport Corporation marshals and ex-servicemen, who would be involved in the scheme’s implementation.
Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai was also present on the occasion.
Kejriwal also appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and central ministers to follow the odd-even scheme voluntarily.
“I strongly believe that like the first phase in January, the second phase too will be successful” he said.
Under the odd-even scheme, four-wheelers with odd registration numbers will ply on odd dates and those with even numbers on even dates. Certain categories like CNG vehicles, ambulances, vehicles driven by women etc have been exempted.
