New Delhi: Three days after Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's odd-even scheme was implemented in Delhi, it faced its real test on Monday when it witnessed maximum traffic during office hours.
"Today is the litmus test for odd-even scheme. And just like our last time attempt to make it a success, we have to cooperate with each other," Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai tweeted.
ऑड-ईवन की आज अग्निपरीक्षा हैं !
पिछली बार की तरह हम सबको मिलकर इसे पास करने के लिये एक दूसरे का सहयोग करना हैं !

Meanwhile, heavy traffic was seen near the Akshardham intersection and at the Mayur Vihar-Noida road.
Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra on Monday took a metro from Civil Lines station to attend a meeting.
The 15-day odd-even traffic scheme started on 15 April and aims to put odd- and even-numbered vehicles on the roads on alternate dates.
