The third edition of odd-even starts today as the pollution levels peaked to a three-year high in the national capital. Introduced in 2016, the odd-even scheme is a car rationing system.
Though the system is seen as a solution for the pollution issue, there are women who are facing problem while dealing with the calculation to find whether their car number is odd or even. Feminists believe that Delhi government’s rule is against women as women would find it tough to know whether their car number is odd or even and by the time they would figure it out, the odd-even scheme would be over by then.
But NaariShakti NGO from Delhi is making it easy for women. It has started organizing 1 hour classes for them to teach them how to calculate odd-even. Many women are availing the services and the number of registrations is increasing rapidly.
