The Delhi High Court on Wednesday refused to interfere or grant immediate stay on the PIL filed in even/odd number formula for cars, saying the petition is premature.
“Why you are filing such type of PILs. It is just a proposal and government is going it on trial basis. If you are doing it for the sake of public interest come after two weeks,” the court said.
The next date of hearing is December 23.
In a move to curb pollution, the Delhi government on Friday proposed a ‘odd/even’ number formula for cars. The move is planned to be rolled out from January 1, 2016. According to the proposal, cars with odd number plate and even number plate will ply on roads on alternate dates.
As per Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s plan, odd numbered vehicles would be allowed on the roads on odd dates “like 1, 3, 5 and so on” and even numbered vehicles on even dates “like 2, 4, 6 and so on” and only on Sunday all vehicles can ply.
Government will only allow emergency vehicles like PCR van, fire tenders, ambulances on the roads of the national capital.
