The government received the public opinion through emails, missed calls, online forms and suggestions of people whom it reached out to through interactive voice response system.

"Around 28,300 suggestions have been received through online forms while another 9,000 and 1,82,808 have come through emails and missed called respectively. The government, on its part, has made more than 9,00,000 calls to gather public opinion", a senior government official said. Now we will analyse the responses, he added.

An email-id 'oddevenidea@gmail.com' was opened on January 26 to invite public opinion on the scheme, while a dedicated website and a phone line was launched on February 1.

Also people's response was gathered through automated calls through IVR (Interactive Voice Response) where they were given a number of options on the proposed second phase of the odd-even scheme. Apart from these, 'jan sabhas' (public meetings) were held across the city on two days to get more feedback.
