Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on the issue of odd-even scheme for plying of private vehicles.

After meeting the Home Minister, Kejriwal said that Rajnath had assured them of full cooperation in implementation of odd-even scheme.

He also said that ministers, officials won't be exempted from the plan.

At the same time, Delhi CM added that single women drivers and patients may be kept out of odd-even formula for cars.

Meanwhile, yesterday the Delhi government had said that the odd-even scheme for plying of private vehicles in the city would be in force from 8 AM-8 PM from January 1 for an initial period of 15 days and there would be no restrictions on vehicular movement on Sundays.

A high-level meeting, chaired by Kejriwal had also decided to enforce the restrictions date-wise as even numbered cars would be allowed to ply on even dates and odd-numbered ones would ply on odd dates, as per PTI.

After the meeting, participated by all stakeholders including Delhi Police, PWD and Metro, Kejriwal had said that his government was yet to take a call on whether the scheme will have the two-wheelers on its ambit.

Transport Minister Gopal Rai had said that government would come out with a detailed blueprint by December 25 which will answer all all the questions being raised by experts and public.
