NEW DELHI: There will be no Odd-Even restrictions on vehicles on November 11-12 in Delhi to ensure hassle-free commute on the occasion of the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday.

Originally, the government had announced the Odd-Even scheme between November 4-15 to fight air pollution. It is effective between 8 am and 8 pm. The decision has been taken so that there is no disturbance in celebrations of the Sikhism founder’s birth anniversary, Mr Kejriwal said at a press conference. “Several Sikh organisations had met me and demanded that Odd-Even rules be lifted for November 11-12. Thousands of people participate in several programmes on the occasion of Guru Nanak Dev’s birth anniversary.

“In view of this, the Delhi government has decided that there will be no Odd-Even restrictions on vehicles on November 11-12,” the chief minister said. The government maintains that due to Odd-Even rule, nearly 15 lakh of the total 30 lakh vehicles remain off the road everyday.

On Friday, a total of 293 challans were issued by teams of traffic police (158), transport (94) and revenue (41) departments till 2 pm. On November 4, the first day of Odd-Even road rationing scheme, Mr Kejriwal had termed the exercise as “successful”. However, the BJP has termed the scheme as an “election stunt” by the Aam Aadmi Party government which was causing harassment to the people. Two thousand civil defence volunteers, 465 teams of the Delhi Traffic Police, revenue and transport departments were deployed on the first day of scheme which will end of November 15.
