Currently over 19 lakh private four wheelers are registered in Delhi, which are doing their fair share in contributing towards emission and traffic congestion. Moreover, an IIT-Kanpur study, vehicular emissions make the capital's air abysmally poor during the winter months. Once the new odd-even formula comes into implementation, this very number is likely to be cut down by half, resulting in reduction of traffic flow and thus significantly reduce the high level of pollution in the city.
Commenting on the same a top official said, "Nineteen lakh private four-wheelers, including cars, jeeps, vans are registered in the capital. After implementation of the odd-even scheme from January 1, around 10-lakh odd-numbered cars will go off the city's roads on even dates and vice versa, during a 15-day trial period."
As for the large number of private cars that enter the capital from other cities like Noida, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Sonipat on daily basis, the government is yet to decide on a policy for those. Moreover, the government is also yet to take a decision for the approximately 57 lakh bikes and scooters that currently ply on the city roads.
Delhi transport minister Gopal Rai has said that the government will come out with a final plan for the implementation of the odd-even formula before December 25 and strictly implement it in order to clean the city's air. "All the departments concerned have been asked to suggest ways to successfully implement the government's scheme. Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) has been directed to engage private buses and school buses under cluster scheme so that people don't face problems while using public transport from January 1to January 15," the official added.
Additionally the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government is also studying three existing acts - the Environment Protection Act, Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act and Motor Vehicles Act under which it can impose a penalty on those found violating the odd-even rule once it is enforced.
