To provide relief to the disabled community from the hassles of commutation, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced that persons with disabilities will now be exempted from the implementation of the Odd-Even scheme.

The new phase of the Odd-Even scheme will be executed in the national capital after Diwali (27 October). The announcement comes after a disabled war veteran, Major DP Singh tweeted a message asking for the relief from the Odd-Even scheme. The exercise will begin from November 4 to 15. It is an innovative way of the AAP government to reduce city pollution.

Kejriwal responded back with positive news for the community.

Previously, Arvind Kejriwal had announced the exemption of women from the scheme.

A unanimous decision on two-wheelers has not been finalized yet. But private CNG vehicles have been asked to comply with the scheme.

It is a method of deciding which license-plate numbers of cars will be allowed to run on a given day. It calls for the provision that allows cars with odd and even number plates to run on alternate days. In the Indian context, it was first implemented in 2015 by the AAP government.

The scheme is aimed to combat the rising pollution in the city area and reduce vehicular emissions.
