ITANAGAR: After a fair amount of success of Delhi's odd-even experiment, an Arunachal Pradesh town has fixed the seventh day of every month as a vehicle free day in an attempt to reduce pollution.
This order was issued on Friday but was only announced on World Environment Day. However, the Lohit District administration has restricted this order to government officials of district headquarters Tezu. The initiative has been started to set an example to set an example for 50,000 people of the town to follow.
Though Arunachal Pradesh is sparsely populated, the State is still not free from traffic snarls. The Traffic congestions, however are a common phenomeon in Itanagar and Naharlagun.
Moreover, the initiative has also been set up with the objective of reducing the government expenditure on fuel.
However, the no-vehicle day is easy upon employees, particularly for women with health issues and emergency issues.
