Leading by example, Chief Justice of India TS Thakur and Justice AK Sikri have decided to carpool to court, despite both being exempt from the odd-even policy restrictions imposed by the Delhi government.

The justices will travel in each other’s cars on alternate days; Justice Thakur’s vehicle is odd numbered and Justice Sikri’s is even.

Incidentally, on January 5, when Justice Thakru’s car will be on the road, a CJI-led bench will hear cases related to rising pollution levels in the national capital.

The Chief Justice had supported the odd-even plan even when it was in a nascent stage. On December 6, soon after taking his oath, Justice Thakur had said, “this is the least we (judges) can do if it can actually help the environment.”
