It’s a good news that Delhi passed the real test of odd even number rule implementation on. People were largely sceptical whether the plan would work or not on monday, after the long weekend and first working day of the new year.These new set of rules aimed at reducing the pollution levels and traffic congestion in delhi seemed to be working as the traffic was comparatively less than the usual .
Only 1040 challans were issued by the end of the day. It is to be noted that 7143 buses were on road on monday plying passengers from different part of the cities.The metro also increased it’s capacity to 32 lakh commuters.While some people reported that the metro had extraordinary rush during the day ,specially at mandi house while some said there was no change in the normal rush in the metro.
Unfortunately there was not much change in the pollution levels of the capital as the figures hovered in the moderate to poor range.This scheme is on trial basis till 15 january.
Only time will tell whether this new traffic situation will help in bringing down the pollution levels of the city or not.
