The Delhi Traffic Police issued 297 challans for violation of the odd-even road rationing scheme on Saturday, officials said.

The anti-pollution measure kicked in on November 4 in the national capital. Under the scheme, vehicles are supposed to ply alternately on odd and even dates as per their registration numbers between 8 am and 8 pm.

The violation of the rule attracts a fine of Rs 4,000.

On Saturday, odd-numbered cars were allowed to ply. A total of 297 challans were issued to those who were found using their even-numbered cars, the officials said.

The road rationing scheme will remain in force till November 15, barring November 11 and 12, when the rule will be lifted to ensure hassle-free commute for devotees on the 550th birth anniversary of Sikhism founder Guru Nanak Dev
