With Delhi’s odd-even strategy soon coming into play, Akshat Mittal, a class VIII student at Amity International School, Noida, has come up with a ingenious way to make people’s life a little easier.
Mittal with the help of his father has created a website called odd-even.com where people can share their journey details and the site in turn will help them connect with people with whom they can travel for regular travelling from/to work.
Talking about how this website works, Mittal said:
“When the chief minister declared that odd and even numbered cars will ply on alternate days, I thought of creating this website. So many people living in the same locality might be going to the same place, of which, they are not aware, so this website will bridge the communication gap. Besides, this will help making new contacts.”
What one has to do is fill out answers to few general questions like their name, source, destination, car’s registration number and other preferences like age, gender and profession.

Mittal also plans to come up with a mobile app to make the site accessible.
When Akshat was asked where did he learn coding for this website and why did he come up with it as schools will remain close during this time, the youngster quickly replied that it was his father who helped him.
