CBSE asks Class 12 students to promote burial and discourage cremation. Is the former better? India Today

“The CBSE Class 12 biology exam was conducted across the country yesterday. Talking to India Today Education, students who gave the exam said that they found the paper very lengthy. Most of the students, apparently, could not complete the paper on time and said that some questions were tricky.
We guess we know one such question that left the students confused during their board exam. CBSE asked the students which practice is better – burial or cremation. Students were asked to justify their choice explaining which practice help control air pollution. ”  India Today

Re-utilize crop residue instead of burning, says report: The Indian Express

“To prevent the national capital from choking on large amounts of crop residue burnt every year, a Delhi-based NGO has recommended setting up of a standalone institution to incentivise farmers to use crop residue in other ways. Set up as a Special Purpose Vehicle called ‘Fasal Avshesh Upyog Nigam (FAUN)’, it aims to encourage farmers to avail benefits under existing schemes on farm mechanisation, and also purchase or temporarily hire machinery for treating crop residue.”   The Indian Express

SC’s decision to stop sales of high-emitting vehicles is a first step, not the last: Hindustan Times

“The Supreme Court’s decision barring the sale of motor vehicles that do not comply with BS IV exhaust emissions standards after March 31 completed a long-drawn-out transition that began seven years ago. BS III vehicles emit two to five times more particulate matter than their BS IV counterparts. The Court’s decision effectively makes the BS IV emission standards national rather than regional, a change made possible because low sulphur fuels are now available countrywide. It is a crucial step in the direction of cleaning up vehicular emissions and solving India’s terrible air-quality problems.”  Hindustan Times
