NEW DELHI, INDIA - JANUARY 1: Volunteers holding placards on the first day of Delhi's Odd-Even Vehicle Plan, on January 1, 2016 in New Delhi, India. The odd-even scheme that allows odd and even-numbered private vehicles to ply on city roads on alternate days aims at reducing air pollution levels. All diesel and petrol cars, irrespective of where they are coming from, will have to follow the rules. If a car is coming from out of Delhi and is breaking the odd-even rule, a fine will be levied. The government has deployed hundreds of volunteers and 3000 buses to help traffic police. To clean the Capital's toxic air, only odd-numbered private cars will be allowed on the road on odd dates and even-numbered on even days. Violators face a fine of Rs. 2,000.

NEW DELHI -- Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai on Friday said that the Aam Aadmi Party ( AAP) Government would submit its report on the level of pollution in the national capital in the High Court and added that the status quo of the Odd-Even formula would be known only after the order is passed.

Rai also said that the Odd-Even scheme has gathered diverse views from the people, with some accepting it while others criticising the move.

He added, "It had already been decided that the formula would be implemented for fifteen days and only after weighing the pros and cons would the future of the scheme be decided."

The Delhi High Court had earlier asked the state government as to why it was necessary to run the Odd-Even traffic rule for more than a week and asked if the scheme could end on Friday.

The High Court also asked the government to submit a detailed report on its findings on the pollution level for the first seven days.
