The request was made to address the growing concern over deteriorating air quality, which poses a severe health risk to residents of the region. Rai emphasized the need for stringent measures to reduce vehicular emissions and promote cleaner, eco-friendly modes of transportation.
The proposal aligns with the Indian government's efforts to transition towards cleaner fuels and advanced emission standards. BS-VI, the most stringent emission standard to date, aims to significantly reduce harmful pollutants from vehicle exhaust.
Gopal Rai underscored the importance of transitioning to cleaner energy sources, stating that this move would not only improve air quality but also contribute to the fight against climate change.
The Delhi-NCR region has been grappling with severe air pollution issues, particularly during the winter months when weather conditions exacerbate the problem. Implementing such a measure could have a substantial impact on air quality and the overall well-being of the population.
This proposal comes in the wake of numerous initiatives taken by the Delhi government to promote eco-friendly transportation, including the expansion of CNG refuelling infrastructure and incentives for electric vehicle adoption.
While it remains to be seen how the central government will respond to this request, it reflects the growing consensus on the urgent need to address air quality concerns in urban areas and prioritize sustainable transportation solutions.
