NEW DELHI: The odd-even car rationing scheme will be enforced in the national capital for a five-day period starting November 13, Delhi transport minister Kailash Gahlot said on November 9, 2017.

The move comes as air pollution levels have spiked in the national capital region. Under the policy, private odd-numbered cars are allowed to run on odd dates while even-numbered cars can only run on even dates.

"The policy will be implemented from November 13-17. We request people and all agencies to cooperate. Exemptions will be the same like last time," Kailash Gehlot said.

The transport minister informed that IGL stickers for cars will be available from November 10, 2017, at 22 CNG stations across Delhi.

He informed that extra buses are also being arranged.

Earlier, the Delhi High Court asked Union Environment secretary to call an emergency meeting within three days with Chief Secretaries of states and pollution control agencies falling under the National Capital Region to discuss measures to curb pollution.

The court stated that the odd-even scheme last year had unclogged the city. The high court even told the Delhi government to consider implementing odd-even vehicle movement scheme as a short term measure this year too.
