NOIDA, INDIA - JANUARY 1: A Civil Defence personnel holds a placard as he stands at a traffic intersection on the first day of Delhi's Odd-Even Vehicle Plan, on January 1, 2016 in Noida, 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. More than a million private cars were banned from New Delhi's roads as authorities began trialling drastic new measures to cut smog in the world's most polluted capital.

It's been three days that the Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government imposed the odd-even rule in the city. However, the real test for Kejriwal's odd-even anti-pollution rule began today, with Delhiites getting back to work after a long weekend.

Today being 4 January, means that only cars with even registration numbers are allowed on the capital's roads. While the data on pollution is yet to be released, the traffic definitely seemed to be less than usual this Monday morning.

We did a comparison of what the roads look like on a usual Monday morning and how it was today.
