In his note to Chief Secretary MM Kutty, Kejriwal said due to traffic congestion and jams reaching office, college or home on time has become a "daily challenge".

"In the past, the approach has been haphazard and random, to say the least. The state of affairs cannot be allowed to remain as it is at the moment. We need systematic and planned efforts to ease the burden on the commuter," he said.

The chief minister said the reasons for traffic congestion in several parts of Delhi could be due to encroachments, poor traffic management, bad road design, enforcement, among others.

"These bottlenecks lead to traffic snarls, particularly during peak hours. Transport secretary should make a list of these bottlenecks across the city. Feedback from Delhi Police and public should also be taken to prepare this list," Kejriwal said.

He also said once the list was ready, authorities would need to find solution to each bottleneck.
