    The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Saturday allowed the Delhi government to implement the odd-even car scheme from November 13 to 17 with little exemption.

    The government believes that odd-even will help in cutting down pollution emanating from vehicles by 50 percent. The Delhi High Court has also suggested that the odd-even rule could help unclog the city.

    This is the third time that the Delhi government is implementing the odd-even rule which was first introduced last year in January from 1-15 and in April 2016 for a period of for 15 days.

    As the system is coming into force from November 13, here are a few things you should know

    Few things to know about it

    • The odd-even rule will be implemented for five days beginning November 13-15 and would be put into effect between 8 am to 8 pm.
    • Private vehicles with odd registration numbers will be allowed on the road on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
    • Vehicles with even numbers will run on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Nothing has been finalised about Sundays yet.
    • This rule will not be applicable on emergency vehicles like PCR vans, fire tenders and ambulances, and on public transports like CNG-driven buses, taxis and auto-rickshaws.
    • So, unlike the last time the scheme was implemented, two-wheelers, government servants and women will also have to follow the car rationing scheme.
    • This system, therefore, will be applicable only on private-owned four wheelers running across Delhi, and on those coming in from other states. And that includes vehicles used by ministers and bureaucrats of all ranks.
    • The violation of the odd-even rule can lead to a levy of a fine of Rs. 2,000 in accordance with the provisions of sub-section (1) of section 194 of Motor Vehicles Act, 1988.
