Try to avoid driving to India Gate this week.

A number of important events scheduled in the coming days around the area is likely to increase traffic flow considerably, which translates to sizeable traffic jams.

There’s the Hockey World Cup at the National Stadium from February 28 to March 13. And on February 25, India and Pakistan will hold secretary level talks at Hyderabad House.

And every day barring the weekend, Parliament is in session, with its regular VIP movements, which will keep our vehicles standing stock still till the VIP has passed by. Invariably there will be protest rallies too, clogging up traffic for long distances.

With the Railway Budget scheduled for Wednesday and the annual Budget for Friday, attendance in Parliament is likely to be higher than usual, and VIP movements will be more frequent.

“We will make adequate arrangements to smoothen traffic,” said Satyendra Garg, joint commissioner of police (traffic).
