on Wednesday, officials had issued 579 challans. The curb on vehicles under the scheme is enforced between 8 am and 8 pm on weekdays.
A penalty of Rs 2,000 under relevant sections of the Motor Vehicles Act is levied on violators of the road-rationing scheme under which cars with odd and even-numbered license plates ply on alternate days.
15 April, the first day of odd-even second phase had seen a total of 1,311 challans. The figures came down subsequently as penal action slowed down movement of vehicles leading to congestion.
