New Delhi, Nov 9 : The Delhi government appears set to implement the third phase of odd-even traffic rule from November 13 to 17, as the national capital faces an environmental emergency.

The Supreme Court appointed environment body and the Delhi Lt. Governor on Wednesday instructed the Delhi government to stay prepared to roll out the odd-even car rationing scheme, with air pollution levels rising alarmingly.

Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot is to hold a meeting on the issue in the evening when a formal announcement is to be made, officials said.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal re-tweeted posts by media houses saying the odd-even will kick in from November 13.

Government officials said that modalities of the road rationing scheme are being worked out.
