Three-year plan to let Delhi breathe: The Times of India

NEW DELHI: Underlining air pollution as a serious problem, the government’s think tank Niti Aayog in its latest action agenda has come out with a five-point remedy, including higher taxes on petrol\diesel, higher parking fees and shutting down coal-based power plants in a phased manner, to deal with the menace within three years…Though whatever the Aayog suggested has already been in different phases of implementation under the government’s plan of action, its emphasis may help states and central ministries to execute the measures on priority….Listing coal-based power plants, brick kilns, vehicles (especially diesel), cooking and heating fires which burn biomass, waste burning, stubble burning and dust from construction, roads and fallow fields as “major sources of air pollution”, the Aayog noted that the problem is not limited to Delhi and wanted the government to take “corrective action” and strictly enforce various bans and traffic laws across the country.” The Times of India
