Please, Spare Us The Odd-Even Torture This Winter

Delhi’s Transport Minister recently said that the odd-even rule for rationing private cars’ use of Delhi roads may be back this winter. Now, we don’t have any definitive answer for whether the implementation of the odd-even scheme leads to any reduction in pollution levels. There are also some other compelling reasons to argue why bringing back the scheme is a bad idea. We can start with the citizens’ right to free movement, which gets terribly impaired every time the odd-even rule is in force.
