NEW DELHI: The odd-even scheme may again be implemented in Delhi in view of the growing pollution in the NCR region.

The Delhi Government, in a statement, has said it might have to resort to emergency measures, including implementation of odd-even schemes, due to increase in pollution level in the capital.

According to the statement, state Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot has asked the department to keep prepared for when the scheme is announced.
