Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said that the odd-even scheme was no longer required in the national capital as the skies have cleared up in the national capital, reported news agency ANI.

"There is no need of odd-even scheme now as the skies have cleared up," ANI reported Kejriwal as saying when asked a question in this regard at a press conference in Delhi.

In an attempt to reduce traffic congestion and tackle pollution, the odd-even scheme was introduced in the national capital from November 4 to 15.

The traffic rationing scheme prohibited plying of private vehicles based on the last digit of their registration numbers. Vehicles with even digits were only allowed to ply on even dates, and those with odd numbers on odd dates.

This was the third edition of the odd-even restrictions, a flagship scheme of the AAP government, on private vehicles in Delhi. The first two versions of the initiative were introduced in 2016.
