Odd, even numbered vehicles to run on alternate days in Delhi from Jan 01

India TV News Desk [ Updated: December 05, 2015 11:46 IST ]

The Delhi government has taken a very interesting decision for controlling air pollution in the national capital.

Kejriwal government has decided to allow private vehicles with even and odd registration numbers to run on alternate days only from January 1,  2016.

This decision effectively means that vehicles ending with an even number will ply on a certain day and followed by odd number plates in the next day. However this rule will not apply to public vehicles.

Delhi government has also decided to shut down south Delhi's Badarpur power plant. The power plant is coal-based plant run by the NTPC.  

The government has also decided to move to National Green Tribunal (NGT) to request for closure of Dadri Thermal power plant which falls in the neighbouring state of Uttar Pradesh.
