NEW DELHI: Delhi government will organise the sixth Car-free Day in North-East Delhi's Shahdara area and a cycle-rally will not be carried out this time and an environment-awareness march held instead.

Government observes car-free day on 22nd of every month in different areas of the city to encourage people to use public transport.

"The next car-free day will be observed between Shahdara and Loni Road. At every such event, we carry out cycle rally but this time we have decided to hold environment-awareness march by the people," said a senior government official.

The official further said that a plantation drive will also be carried out to mark the event. Car-free day will be observed from 8 AM to 4 PM in the area.

The last car-free day was observed from Munirka T-Point to Hyatt Hotel T-point, Vivekanand Marg in South Delhi which had witnessed a cycle-rally led by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.
