Introduced in 2016, the rule has been initiated amid heavy smog and threatening AQI, for the third time in the National Capital.
After the first few hours of the rule ensured smooth traffic, we look at how netizens felt about it on day 1.

Just saw 1 Odd numbered car on my way today. Way to go Delhi. Yes, this pollution is the worst ever, and all the reasons arent in our area of control, but we must do what we can. We must do our bit. Hope the Govt has made adequate provisions for Public transport. #OddEvenDobara— Dr Ojasvi Batra (@DaktarBatra) November 4, 2019

It should be permanent in Delhi
Once a week ban on all commercial vehicles as well

While many were in favour of this iconic scheme, others believed the real cause of pollution lies elsewhere and that AAP's rationing of cars will not be beneficial.
