HC says no to restraining odd/even vehicle formula

New Delhi, Dec 9 (IANS) The Delhi High Court on Wednesday refused to restrain the city government from enforcing it’s decision to allow even and odd number cars to ply in Delhi on alternative dates, saying the decision is on a “trial basis”.

A division bench of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath refused to pass any order on two PILs against Delhi government’s a decision and posted the matters for December 23.

“It’s premature. Why are you filing these petitions? Delhi government is discussing this with groups of people. They will implement it from January 1, 2016 on trial basis. There is no policy/notification now. There is a proposal. You can’t use these PILs just to pressurise the government,” said the bench while adjourning the case.

Appearing for the Delhi government, advocate Rahul Mehra opposed the pleas, saying the government has been discussing the issue with groups of people and the pleas should be dismissed.
