The car rationing formula by the Delhi Government officially ends today as the odd-even plan has completely its 15-day trial period.
The Delhi government had said yesterday said that, the decision for the second phase of the experiment is likely to be taken in the review meeting scheduled for Monday.
Meanwhile the Delhi High Court has backed the scheme and has said that the odd-even scheme of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government was a success to some extent, as the idea had appealed to the people.
A bench made the observation in response to the submission of Delhi Traffic Police that the scheme was successful mainly due to the 2000 rupees fine payable for violation and added that the Delhi government was successful in publicising the concept and making it appealing to the masses.
The Supreme Court had yesterday refused the urgent hearing of a plea challenging the High Court judgement and Delhi Government’s notification on the Odd-Even formula and ruled that the experiment will not be cancelled.
Terming the plea as a ‘publicity stunt’, the Supreme Court said, “People are dying due to pollution. We are doing car-pooling and you want to challenge it.”
