The government had already announced its decision to exclude women and cars carrying children to schools out of the restriction.

Delhi government on Saturday also released the draft notification to this effect (see below)

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, said that his government was considering implementing odd-even plan once every month for a fortnight.

He said a fortnight every month was being thought of since it cannot be made permanent in the absence of a robust public transport system.

The list of exemptions include VIP and CNG cars, vehicles being driven by women, cases of medical emergency and cars carrying disabled persons, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal told a press conference in Delhi.

Kejriwal admitted that implementing the exemption to cars carrying children in school uniform would be tricky as not all such vehicles stay behind to bring students back from school.

“There are two types in this case. In one case, a vehicle drops a child to school, stays put, and brings him back.

“But there are cases where a child may not be in the car on one side of the journey. It will cause a little trouble,” Kejriwal said.
