Odd-Even Scheme 2023

In this type of traffic rationing, private vehicles with even-numbered registration numbers will run on even-numbered dates. Whereas, vehicles with odd-digit registration numbers will run on odd-numbered days. The chief minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal, chaired a high-level meeting to discuss pollution-reducing strategies with officials and cabinet members. After the meeting, the Delhi Environment Minister announced at a press conference that the Odd-Even system will start after Diwali. For now, Delhi will have the Odd-Even Vehicle System in effect for a week.

Odd Even Scheme Implementation in Delhi

Implementation of Odd-Even Scheme

In this scheme, vehicles with license plates ending in odd numbers will operate on odd-numbered dates. In this case, November 13, 15, 17, and 19 are the odd-numbered dates. Nonetheless, vehicles with license plates ending in the even digits will run on even-numbered dates. In this case, the dates November 14, 16, 18, and 20 are even.

Delhi Pollution Level Reports

The pollution levels in Delhi-NCR on Monday morning were almost seven to eight times higher than the government-mandated permitted limit. Delhi’s air quality index was 488 on Monday, according to the Central Pollution Control Board. The Delhi government, led by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), has recently imposed severe measures, like forbidding the entry of polluting trucks, in reaction to the air becoming toxic due to unfavorable wind conditions and a sharp rise in farm fires throughout north India.

Delhi-NCR sees dangerously high levels of air pollution every winter due to a combination of factors including firecrackers, burning paddy straw, cars emitting pollutants, unfavorable weather patterns, and other regional sources of pollution. Delhi’s pollution peaked between November 1 and November 15, according to the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC), when more stubble-burning incidents occurred in Punjab and Haryana.

Sunday saw the highest number of farm fire reports this season – 4,160 – from north India, according to the New Delhi-based Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI). Punjab alone recorded 3,230 stubble-burning incidences, the highest number in a single day this season in the state, according to data from the Punjab Remote Sensing Centre.

Odd-Even Scheme Violating Penalty

The penalty for breaking the odd-even regulations was raised to rupees 4,000 in 2019. The previous fine was rupees 2,000. The Delhi Traffic Police may enforce the scheme and impose fines on individuals who break it. Notably, the concept was initially introduced in 2016 by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Divergent expert perspectives exist about this issue; some contend that on the days it is implemented, traffic and car emissions have decreased.

On the other hand, some experts argue that the alteration has no long-term benefits. Instead, the government should focus on progressively banning cars that use unclean fuel and enhancing the incentives for converting to electric and CNG vehicles. An official order issued on November 5 states that until the air quality improves, polluting trucks and other commercial four-wheelers are not permitted to enter Delhi. The national capital would only be reachable by EVs, CNG cars, and cars that met BS VI regulations.
