Odd-even policy worked well but don't extend it: Survey

New Delhi: A majority of the capital's residents have told a survey that the odd-even policy for private cars has been implemented well, a sizeable number felt autos and taxis were fleecing them, even as those who do not want the practice to continue outnumbered others.

Conducted by LocalCircles, a citizen engagement platform, the survey found that during the first 10 days, a vast majority of people said either they used public transportation, including autos and taxis, or their second car. Only 8 percent opted for car-pooling and 9 percent used a bike.

The platform claims it is connected with more than one million citizens across India, and to the five questions that formed a part of the survey on the first 10 days of the odd-even policy, the respondents ranged between 11,785 and 13,971. IANS
