As Delhi faces the real test for the Odd/Even formula today, Twitter is abuzz with ground reports from netizens.
Many have already stamped the policy as a successful one as commuters across Delhi-NCR are facing less traffic, with some reporting an improvement in the air quality as well. Many have taken to Twitter to report on the traffic conditions. Some tweets also mention that odd-numbered vehicles are still plying on the roads.
#OddEvenMovement and #OddEvenBhaiBhai are among the top three trends on Twitter. Netizens are also praising Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for the initiative. Calling it a success, here's what netizens are tweeting:
