However, later the city government demanded that the Odd-Even scheme shall come in entire NCR region and not just Delhi.

Earlier, the government had announced exemptions for women drivers, two-wheelers and vehicles carrying children in school uniforms, besides VVIPs.

The Delhi government was forced to withdraw its appeal for modifications in the odd-even scheme that they made before the tribunal.

However, appreciating the city government, the bench headed by NGT chief Justice Swatanter Kumar has sough more clarity.
