Schools in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh will remain closed till November 5 as per the order issued by the government. To curb the problem of pollution the Delhi government has implemented the odd-even scheme which will begin from today in the national capital. The scheme will remain in place till November 15 and will be applicable from 8 am to 8 pm.

Under the odd-even scheme, private vehicles with registration numbers ending with an odd digit (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) will be allowed on roads on odd dates and those with an even digit (0, 2, 4, 6, 8) on even dates. The rules will also be applicable on vehicles with registration numbers of other states.
