NEW DELHI: In a bid to curb rising pollution, the Delhi government on Friday decided that odd and even number vehicles will ply on alternate days in the capital from January 1, official sources said.

The decision, taken at a meeting presided over by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, will not apply to CNG-driven buses, taxis and auto-rickshaws but will cover vehicles entering Delhi from other states too. 

The Delhi government has also decided to shut down south Delhi's Badarpur power plant, one of the coal-based plants of the NTPC.

The government will also launch a web based App which people can use to report about polluting vehicles in the capital.
