New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday congratulated Delhiites for making the second phase of odd-even scheme a "success" and the fate of its next edition will be decided only after a report of comparative study of the two phases by a committee set up by government.

Transport Minister Gopal Rai said that "the exam of second phase of the car-rationing scheme was difficult and Delhiites have passed despite challenges of hot weather and opening of schools, compared to the first phase."

 

The minister claimed that the compliance rate of the scheme was 99.6%, which indicates that people followed the odd-even scheme and people "made history" by following the fortnight-long car-ration scheme which ends today.

"Today is the last day of odd-even -II. Congratulations Delhi for again making it a success," Kejriwal tweeted.

Rai said that after implementing two phases of odd-even scheme, we have two models - one is summer and the second one is winter.

"The six-member committee, which was recently constituted to study the impact of opening of schools and hot weather during the second phase, has been asked to do a comparative study on first and second phase of the scheme. It has been asked to submit its report on May 10," Rai told reporters here.

 

Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) has been asked to submit its report on pollution level from April 6 to May 6 so that government could get to know about the levels of pollution before and after the scheme, he said.

"DPCC will submit its report on May 9. Once comparative study is submitted, we will analyse these two reports and CM Kejriwal will decide the fate of third phase of odd-even scheme," the Transport Minister said.

Rai claimed that during the second phase, the pollution level increased three folds in border areas compared to inner areas where it has gone down significantly.

 

"We had conducted a study of pollution levels at 74 locations, including NCR, during the second phase of odd-even scheme. Out of 74, 55-63 locations, which were inner areas, witnessed reduction in pollution levels while pollution level increased at only 10-15 areas which are located at border areas," the minister further said.
