A forerunner scheme of the Delhi government, aimed at tackling pollution, odd-even was first enforced in 2015.
while putting forth the announcement, Arvind Kejriwal stated that smog from neighbouring states because of the burning of crop debri is the main cause of pollution in the national capital and even-odd is one measure that Delhi government will take up to deal with the issue.
"On 2 and 3 November, there is Saturday and Sunday. Odd-even will be implemented from November 4 to November 15. Studies show that it reduces pollution by 10-13 percent," said Kejriwal.
The scheme demands cars with odd and even number plates on the road on alternate days.
