The Delhi High Court on Wednesday questioned the Delhi government, asking it to explain why women and two-wheelers were exempt for its odd-even trial to curb pollution in the city.


The state government’s ambitious odd-even scheme is all set to roll out from January 1, but CNG-certified vehicles, two wheelers, cars being driven by women drivers and those carrying the differently abled will be out of its ambit.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had earlier said that the scheme has received all the necessary approvals and a notification for its implementation would be issued next Monday. Violators would attract a penalty of Rs 2,000, he had said.

The car-rationing scheme would be applicable from 8 am to 8 pm on all days except Sunday and on cars with NCR and other states' registration number plates.

Cars being driven by a woman alone or even while being accompanied by children up to the age of 12 would be exempted while cases of medical emergencies would be treated on "basis of trust", the CM had announced.

Vehicles bearing defence ministry number plates and those of Special Protection Group Protectees (SPG) would not be covered by the rules under which cars bearing odd and even numbers would ply on alternate dates till January 15.

Emergency and enforcement vehicles such as ambulances, fire brigade, police vehicles, transport department vehicles would be out of its ambit as well.
