No relaxation for CNG vehicles

Kejriwal said, privately driven CNG vehicles will not be allowed to ply during the odd-even drive as the exemption stickers given to owners of such vehicles were misused during the last two phases of the scheme and a repeat of that “would defeat the purpose” of implementing it.

Cab aggregator Uber will deactivate surge pricing during November 4-15, when the odd-even scheme will be rolled out in Delhi. US-based Uber had recently made a submission to the Delhi government, offering the use of 5,000 bike-taxis to improve first and last-mile connectivity during the odd-even scheme to be implemented next month. Current regulations do not allow bike-taxis to operate in Delhi.
