To curb the increasing air pollution in Delhi, the government will implement its ‘odd-even’ plan from January 1, 2016. The ‘odd-even’ formula would not extend to two-wheelers, women-only vehicles, top politicians, CNG, hybrid and electric vehicles.

The restrictions will be in effect for a 15-day trial period in which cars with registration numbers that end with an odd digit will be allowed on odd-numbered dates while those ending with an even digit will be allowed to commute on an even-numbered date. During this period, the rule will be in force from 8am to 8pm on all days, except Sundays. And mind you, violating the rule can get you a fine of Rs 2,000.

Here is a list of vehicles exempted from the ‘Odd Even’ Plan:

  • CNG (with display sticker), electric and hybrid vehicles
  • Vehicles driven by women with women passengers
  • Vehicles occupied/driven by handicapped persons
  • Ambulances and hearses, and vehicles belonging to the fire brigade, hospitals and prisons
