CPCB suggests removing diesel vehicles from public transport – Bollywood Keeda

New Delhi. The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) in a report presented in the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has suggested that public transport should be made cheaper than two-wheelers. The expert committee also said that diesel vehicles involved in urban public transport should be phased out across the country to control pollution.

Along with this, the expert committee has said that in the next five years, urban transport across the country should be operated only by metro, electric vehicles or CNG. The expert committee formed to reduce pollution has also presented its suggestions in the NGT, giving information about the steps being taken to control pollution across the country. The expert committee has advised purchasing CNG or electric buses for new public transport. The experts of the committee have stressed on basing public transport on metro or purchasing sufficient number of buses, so that people get attracted towards public transport. Apart from this, it has also been advised to develop route planning and mobile app based ticketing and seating system based on traffic survey in all major cities.

Burning of cow dung and other biomass should be banned

CPCB has suggested to distribute government approved cooking stoves in rural areas. Also, people have been suggested not to burn any biomass including cow dung in cooking and to encourage the use of LPG at the block/panchayat level. This work can be done through Anganwadi workers and ANM nurses.

Spontaneous cognizance on air quality in Delhi-NCR

On November 3, NGT had taken suo motu cognizance of deteriorating air quality in many big cities of the country including Delhi-NCR and sought answers from CPCB and concerned states.

There should be charging stations every 3 kilometers for electric vehicles in cities.

Charging stations should be built on both sides of the highway at 25 kilometers.
