The government of Delhi took a call to implement tried and tested formula Odd-Even from November 13 to 18.
In 2016, the 'odd-even' policy, which was first implemented for 15 days in January, again implemented from April 15 to 30. Women and two-wheelers were exempted.
The government has assured that the same exemptions will continue this year too. Also, a meeting of cabs and taxis has been called tomorrow to ensure that there will be no surge pricing this time.
A study shows Delhi's odd-even scheme had little impact on air pollution.
However, scientists, who studied last year's odd-even, say that Delhi's odd-even scheme had little impact on air pollution.
In May, the study published online in the journal 'Environmental Science and Policy' found that there was only a marginal drop in the PM2.5 levels during the period.
While the levels of the toxic particles came down by 8 to 10 per cent in some pockets, the rest of the capital recorded a drop of only 2 to 3 per cent.
