 Delhi High Court has refused to cancel AAP government's Odd-Even scheme and said that it would not interfere with the notification brought by the Delhi government.

 
However,the Court asked the government to consider issues raised by the petitioners on the Odd-Even traffic plan that is  under operation since January 1.
 
Claiming that its Odd-Even traffic plan has been successful,the Delhi government said on January 10,"Air quality in Delhi improved considerably on Saturday, 9 January, mainly due to strong winds and sunny conditions, with level of particulate matter settling 50 percent less than the average readings since the enforcement of the odd-even scheme."
