New Delhi: Odd-even scheme in Delhi will not be extended, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said today as road-rationing scheme that began on November 4 for 12 days, ends today with no relief in pollution levels.
"Weather monitoring agencies have said that in the coming 2-3 days pollution levels will come down, so we will not extend odd-even scheme and cause any unnecessary inconvenience to people," the Delhi Chief Minister today said.
"A final call on extending the odd even scheme will be taken on Monday," he added.
Mr Kejriwal had earlier this week said the odd-even scheme may get extended if needed.
