The Delhi government on Thursday said app-based taxi operators will be restrained from levying ‘peak time charges’ when the second round of the odd-even scheme will be in force.

Action will be taken if we receive complaints of app-based taxis charging exorbitant fares when the scheme is in force.
Gopal Rai, Delhi Transport Minister

The scheme aims at cutting down on the number of vehicles plying on the city’s roads. Taxis have been exempted under the road-rationing plan and are in demand when it is in force.

Commercial vehicles bearing yellow number plates, including CNG-run taxis, three-wheeler and four-wheeler tempos, autos and taxis will be allowed to ply under the scheme.
