What is the Odd-Even scheme?

The Odd-Even scheme is a traffic rationing measure by the Delhi government led by Arvind Kejriwal under which private vehicles with registration numbers ending with an odd digit will be allowed on roads on odd dates and those with an even digit on even dates. Applicable in the national capital from November 4, it will be enforced until November 15 from 8 am to 8 pm.

There is a huge list of exemptions as well such as women-driven vehicles, vehicles ferrying school children, two-wheelers, ministers of the Central government and the President.
