The Delhi government on Friday issued a notification to implement the odd-even scheme in the national capital from Nov. 4-15.

No surge pricing will not be done by app-based cabs, such as Ola and Uber, during the odd-even scheme, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Friday.

Noting that the pollution situation has worsened in Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said the Centre, as well as the governments of Punjab and Haryana, should give a timeline to stop crop stubble burning.

He said the order for staggered office timings for Delhi government employees has also been issued. The offices of various departments of the Delhi government will open at 9.30 a.m. and 10.30 a.m., he said.
