Guru Nank Dev anniv: Govt may lift Odd-Even rule on Nov 11-12

New Delhi: The Delhi government is likely to lift the Odd-Even restrictions on vehicles on November 11-12 to ensure hassle-free commute on the occasion of 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of Sikhism.

Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot said on Wednesday that the government received representation from Sikh organisations seeking exemptions from the road rationing rules on Guru Nanak Dev's birth anniversary on November 12. Originally, the government had announced the Odd-Even scheme between November 4 and November 15 to fight air pollution. It is effective between 8 am to 8 pm.

"We have received representation from Sikh leaders and another delegation is coming to meet us in this regard. The government is thinking of overall exemption on November 11-12 since religious functions will take place on both days," Gahlot told reporters.
