Delhi-government's ambitious 'Odd-Even' road rationing scheme is ready to make a comeback for the second season after the Aam Admi Party (AAP) earlier claimed that the first trial phase, implemented in January, was successful in bringing down pollution levels in the national capital. To be implemented between April 15 to April 30, the second phase would witness setting up of special environment monitoring centres. As many as six environment monitoring centres will be set up in Delhi and three would be set up in neighbouring regions from April 6 to monitor environment and track pollution levels before and during the implementation of the scheme. Highlighting these and other initiatives, Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai at a press conference on Tuesday said that the Aam Admi Party (AAP) government would also notify neighbouring states – Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh – about the implementation of the scheme to seek their cooperation. Notably, the decision was taken in the assembly session earlier during the day. Further, a total of 5,000 civil defence volunteers will be deployed this time for smooth execution of Odd-Even formula. In the first phase, 4,000 volunteers were deployed. They are making metro volunteering team, DTC conductors monitoring team, civil defence volunteers who will take the oath on April 13. While, talks on exemption of women from the rule are still on because of differing opinions from the surveys. The final notification about exemption of women from the rule will be notified on April 8.
