Nayan Sarawgi started this petition to Narendra Modi (Prime Minister of India)

We all are aware that India is one of the most polluting nations in the world with 13 of the top  20 polluted cities being in our country. Air pollution is the most severe form of it which directly and indirectly consumed 6.5 million lives in 2012 as per World Health Organisation . 25% of all heart related diseases are caused by bad quality of air. As per new reports 9 out of 10 people in the world breathe polluted air. 

Life expectancy is expected to reduce by about 10 years by 2022 in many oarts of the country. Several sources contribute to the cause like vehicular emissions, industrial pollution and many more. There are about 230 million vehicles in the country as of 2016 of which not even 0.1 percent are electric . Even though the government is on a plan to have 30% of electric vehicles by 2030 it hardly seems possible with the current rate of development. 

Even though the government's plan of mixing ethanol with fossil fuels under our Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Minister of Road Development and Highways Nitin Gadkari  is helping to a certain extent but still we are still miles away from our ambitious goal. This cannot be achieved at the caterpillar pace at which it is currently being considered . Hence a collective action needs to be implemented wherein even the citizens are very much a part of the ambitious project.  

For example, China, which offered very high concessions and subsidies on purchase of electric vehicles. This encourages the people to shift to new methods of transport. 

Hence, I urge the Government of India to kindly act on the issue and encourage and provide incentives for manufacturing and promoting electric vehicles in the country.
