The condition is so severe that the government is implementing a new scheme that will only allow either odd or even-numbered cars to ply on the roads on alternate days. This Odd-Even car rationing scheme will be enforced from 4th to 15th November from 8 am to 8 pm Monday to Saturday. Should anyone be found violating, this rule will lead to a fine of₹4,000.

However, there are certain exemptions for women, especially women driving with passengers below 12 years and below are exempted. Two-wheelers, cars with physically disabled, and VIP’s are exempted. Delhi Chief Minister and cabinet ministers, however, are not exempted from the scheme.

To help citizens to cope with the scheme, a total of 5100 trips have been added through 294 trains. The number of buses has also been added to help citizens move around while the plan is being enforced. E-hailing companies have been advised by the transport departments to refrain from surge pricing as well as over-charging of e-rickshaws during this time.
