As many as 601 violators of the odd-even scheme were challaned on Tuesday, the 12th day of implementation of car-rationing measures in the national capital.

The police penalised 147 motorists for violating the vehicular restriction norms, enforcement teams of the government’s transport department fined 240 motorists and revenue department booked 214, senior officials said.
