"We need to implement the even-odd car number formula on roads of Mumbai as is being done in Delhi to make Mumbai pollution free. If this plan is successfully implemented, plying of as many as 50 per cent vehicles per day on the roads will be reduced.
This will also help in reducing the city's carbon footprint as 26 per cent of green house gas emissions are caused by using petroleum products. In addition to that the city is also seeing an increase in number of tankers, trucks, buses each day", NCP Mumbai Unit President Sachin Ahir said.
In response, Mungantiwar said the results of Delhi's experiment will take time to show and if successful, the state government will consider implementing it in Mumbai as well.
He further said that the government is open to accepting new ideas from other state governments if it can prove beneficial for Maharashtra.
