Sources said the government may ask the city's private schools to issue a pass or some document to parents through which they can pick up their children in the afternoon.

They further said the government is also contemplating to increase the age limit of children travelling in cars during the scheme from 12 years to 18 years. Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson Swati Maliwal had urged the Transport Minister to consider the same.
