Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday announced guidelines for the second leg of the 'odd-even' traffic scheme in Delhi, saying women drivers and vehicles carrying students in uniform will be exempted from the restrictions.

"Women drivers, CNG-operated vehicles, chief ministers of states and vehicles carrying students in uniform will remain exempted from the restrictions of the second phase of odd-even traffic scheme," Kejriwal told reporters.

Delhi's chief minister and ministers would not be exempted from 'odd-even' restrictions, he said.

He also launched a helpline for 'odd-even' part-two.

"People can call on 011-422400400 if they have any questions related to odd-even traffic scheme," he said.

The second phase of the odd-even traffic scheme will start on April 15 and will continue for a fortnight.

The Delhi Pollution Control Committee will gauge the impact of the second phase of the odd-even plan on the capital's air quality at 119 locations in and around the city.
