    Delhi kicked the odd-even movement into top gear on Monday as the real test for the government's policy began after holidays. Delhi quietly slipped into the odd-even plan on 1st January but critics wanted to wait for Monday to give their verdict on the effectiveness of the odd-even scheme. Now that the judgement day has come, has the government's odd-even plan passed the stern test?
    The results weren't outrightly negative or positive as Delhiites embraced the odd-even policy with open arms. There were those who were critical of the policy as they faced jams on roads due to the barricades set up by the police or huge rush at Rajiv Chowk station.
    Delhi CM himself asked people to avoid public transport and take up carpooling instead to avoid the heavy rush in his radio ad. But judging the success of odd-even policy isn't going to be that easy. Considering that this policy was made to reduce pollution along with traffic, the actual results can only be judged after the end of the 15 day period.
    While some may have been upset about the odd-even policy due to the troubles they had to face, there were countless others who were happy with empty roads.
