Improved Odd-Even Scheme Coming on Valentine's Day?

Urvee posted on 18th January

NDTV had reported that an improved version of the odd-even scheme, with necessary "precautions and changes" would be announced and "implemented soon" in the national capital.

Now, according to the Hindustan Times, it may be as soon as February 14! {Incidentally, that's the day Arvind Kejriwal will complete one year as our Chief Minister}.

The scheme will be implemented again only if Delhiwalas ‘vote’ in favour of it. Kejriwal has said that his government will seek public opinion through a questionnaire, which can be mailed back to It also plans to start a phone line and hold jan sabhas in each constituency to gather feedback.

Suggestions can be sent in till February 8 and the government is expected to come up with details of the second phase on February 10.

Transport Minister Gopal Rai has said that the scheme in its second phase, will "include all," towards which the Delhi government has already started "working". Does that mean single women, or two-wheelers are no longer exempt? Unfortunately, they didn't elaborate on the specifics.

Meanwhile, we're waiting with bated breath {while we sit in traffic}.
