The new vehicle emission norms (BS-VI) and the Ujjwala Scheme providing LPG connections to women below BPL helped check the rapid decline in the air quality (AQ) of Delhi-NCR, says a study conducted by Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) and The Energy Research Institute (TERI).
The concentration of particulate matter 2.5 (PM 2.5) could have gone from 109 mg cc in 2016 to 135 mg cc in 2030, but with interventions, it would be at 118 mg cc, the study says, adding that more such measures would be required for reducing emission from different sectors.
ARAI director Rashmi Urdhwareshe and TERI director-general Ajay Mathur made the study public at the SIAT automotive show in Pune. Read More
