Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said that women will be exempted from the odd-even road rationing scheme which is set to return in the national capital for the third time from November 4-15.
The chief minister said that unlike previous occasions, privately owned CNG vehicles will not be exempted this time.
Speaking on the decision of exempting women from the scheme, Kejriwal said that women driving alone, cars having all women as occupants and women accompanied by children aged less than 12 years will be exempted and the decision has been taken keeping in mind their safety.
Kejriwal further stated that they are consulting experts on whether the two-wheelers should be exempted from the scheme or not and the decision is yet to be taken.
During the odd-even rationing scheme, vehicles with registration numbers ending in an odd number are allowed to be driven on odd number dates and those ending with an even number are allowed to be driven on even number dates.
