New Delhi :

As the much-awaited odd-even scheme starts on Delhi roads, CM Arvind Kejriwal will lead the city's odd-even experiment as he will provide carpooling in his official vehicle to two ministers Gopal Rai, the Transport Minister, and Health Minister Satyendar Jain.

Kejriwal’s license plate ends in an odd number - which gives him the right to use his car today. Today is the first day of a new trial that bans the use of cars on alternate days in a move to check the pollution in the capital.

Now, cars with odd-numbered licence plates can run on odd-numbered dates and those with even-numbered plates on the others. If any violators found they would be fined Rs 2000.  With Delhi police 7500 volunteers are on roads.  

Culture Minister Kapil Mishra plans to ride a bike to work today.  Social Welfare Minister Sandeep Kumar plans to ride a bus on Day 1 of the new rules.

Commuters who encounter problems are invited to use these two helplines 011-42400400 and 011- 41400400. They can also tweet @transportdelhi for information.
