he Delhi High Court on Wednesday asked the Aam Aadmi Party government whether it can limit plying of even and odd numbered vehicles in Delhi on alternative dates for “a week” instead of the planned 15 days.

A division bench of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath asked the government to produce the data on air pollution it has collected in a week during implementation of the odd-even scheme in national capital.

“Is it really necessary to have it for two weeks? Can’t it be confined to eight days? Can you end it on Friday? People are facing inconvenience. Take instructions,” the bench asked the government posting the matter for Friday.

The Delhi government has decided to allow odd-even scheme from January 1 for 15 days.
