The government said that the scheme cannot work without exemptions on women drivers and two-wheelers, as directed by the NGT. Delhi’s public transport system cannot accomodate the surge (if 30 lakh two-wheelers are off the road),said the transport minister of Delhi.

The implementation of the scheme was considered important due to rising concerns about air quality in the capital.
