New Delhi, November 1

The Delhi Government on Friday issued a notification to implement the odd-even road rationing scheme from November 4-15. 

Noting that the pollution situation has worsened in Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said the Centre as well as the governments of Punjab and Haryana should give a timeline to stop stubble-burning. 

The Delhi Government is all set to implement the 12-day odd-even road rationing scheme from Monday, with the deployment of 2,000 additional buses and 61 more trips by metro to cater to commuters in the Capital.

He said the order for staggered office timings of the Delhi Government had also been issued. The offices of various departments of the Delhi Government will open at 9.30 AM and 10.30 AM, he said. The government decided to stagger working hours of its offices during the implementation of the 12-day odd-even scheme. 

However, private offices in the Capital will not come under the government order, with Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal saying this is the first experiment of staggered office timings, but next time the AAP dispensation will consider the same for them. — PTI
