As Delhi’s toxic smog thickens, the possibility of odd-even scheme was already on the cards. How much will this actually reduce the pollution level will be ascertained later but one thing is sure that past experiences with odd-even weren’t pleasant and satisfactory considering the poor public transport of Delhi.
