Make NCR Livable Again: Strictly Implement Pollution Control Board’s Recommendations
This petition had 540 supporters
We all have been fighting for CLEAN AIR from last 2 Years. Ministers have given words a number of times. Hon'ble Higher Courts and National Green Tribunal are vigilant of the issue and consistently issuing Directions. But, No Implementation No Effect. People are dying due to strokes, heart diseases, lung cancer and asthma. The PM(2.5) Level maintains itself around 200 since 2 Years which is well above the Dangerous Mark. The poison in the Air has reached the maximum measurable limit of 999.9, where People can Die due to Breathing.
The Haryana State Pollution Control Board (HSPCB) as well as the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) recognized the Problem in 2016 and recommended ways to tackle this to the Government of Haryana. But Government's huge delay in implementation is making the situation worse and taking the Lives to hell.
As recommended by PCB's, Diesel Auto-Rickshaws hugely contributes to Air Pollution in Metro Areas. Banning these Autos may alone reduce the PM(2.5) Level by more than half. It was seen in Gurugram last year when large number of Diesel Autos were issued challans by Gurugram Police and the Air Quality improved drastically within in 2 Days. Also, Delhi banned Diesel Auto-Rickshaws and Buses Long ago, and thus has saved itself for so long. Same step is long due in neighboring cities as well, especially when there is sufficient availability of CNG in the area. Besides, no dust on roads, no constructions without covering sheets and all of us giving our best contribution would save the Heart of India.
Thus it is requested to the Minister for Environment, Forest and Climate Change and the Chief Minister Haryana to immediately put a blanket ban on Diesel Public Transport and Old vehicles and strictly implement the Recommendations made by the boards.
