New Delhi | Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia pedaled his way to the Secretariat by cycle on Saturday, the second day of the Delhi government’s odd-even scheme.

The much-debated Odd-Even scheme restricting movement of private cars in the national capital was rolled out on New Year. On Saturday, even-numbered vehicles took to the streets. Many passengers relied on car-sharing arrangement to reach their destinations.

Sisodia had to relinquish his car as it was odd-numbered. Several odd-numbered vehicles were seen on road before 8 a.m. today, as the restrictions come into effect between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. every day.

Delhi transport authorities said they received good response from the people on the first day of the odd-even scheme.

Under the scheme, private cars having odd registration numbers will be allowed to ply on odd dates and those with even numbers on even dates.
