New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal addresses a press conference on the implementation of Odd-even formula for cars in the national capital.

Here are the highlights
  • Government can take up an initiative but everyone needs to participate in Delhi to make those initiatives successful
  • Formal notification for Odd-Even Formula will be out on Monday
  • Odd number cars are to ply on odd dates, even numbered cars on even dates
  • There's been a lot of talk so far of odd-even formula but no government has had the guts so far to bring into effect
  • Rs. 2000 fine will be imposed on people who will break the rule
  • I heard that yesterday was the most polluted day of the year
  • We have to solve this problem together, government cannot do it alone
  • Exemption cases to the rule: Emergency vehicles like ambulance, fire, hospital, prison, hearse, enforcement vehicles
  • Vehicles of the President, Vice President, PM, Speaker of Lok Sabha, Deputy Chairman of Rajya Sabha

  • Will take a pledge on January 30 on schools in Delhi where children will convince their parents to follow odd-even formula
  • Its for 15 days, not continuous programme. Maybe after a few months again, to bring down pollution levels
  • 10,000 volunteers will help us in encouraging people to leave their cars home by maybe giving them roses
  • Avoid strangers for car-pooling.Make grouping of friends relatives & colleagues for car pooling
  • Pressure on public transport will be too much if everybody rushes to it, practical solution is car pooling
  • We need cooperation from Traffic Police. Please don't allow jams to happen when you fine people
  • Chief minister and his family will not be exempted from any rule
  • If the public transport is able to bear the pressure, and if the formula works, then we will see if we want to continue it
  • If all the people of Delhi will violate the rule then there is no option, we will have to drop this plan
  • This scheme is for you, for your kids. We are all coughing. It is for the environment
  • I appeal people of Delhi to follow this Formula, this is for you, for your children
  • Lets make this a movement of the people. Not something to be enforced
