Unlike previous occasions, privately owned CNG vehicles will this time not be exempted, he said. “Women driving alone, cars having all women as occupants and women accompanied by children aged less than 12 years will be exempted,” he said.
The decision has been taken keeping in mind their safety, Kejriwal added. A decision on whether two-wheelers should be exempted from the scheme or not is yet to be taken and we are consulting experts, he said.
