With a 28% share in Delhi's particulate matter concentration during winters, the transport sector also provides a huge scope to introduce targeted interventions to curb air pollution. While the government has tightened emission norms and introduced cleaner fuels, the expected results have not been observed in the city's air quality. Studies have shown that around 60% of vehicular air pollution in India can be attributed to 20% of vehicles, the ones that are poorly-maintained or, simply, old.

TERI has advocated bolstering the city’s tram infrastructure, including exploring the possibility of electric buses making use of the same overhead power supply network. Tram infrastructure should be improved. The state government can explore dual-use of tram overhead power supply network, as the same can be shared by electric buses, said TERI’s Director General Dr Ajay Mathur on the sidelines of a Bengal Chamber of Commerce and Industry programme.

How India’s taxi fleet can go electric

India has 14 of the 15 most-polluted cities in the world, says the latest World Health Organization report. One of the ways to clean up the air will be to go for emission free electric vehicles (EVs). By pushing EVs, like China has done, India could leapfrog to the next generation of motor transportation and a green economy. India has surplus electricity generation capacity and an additional 50,000 MW is in the pipeline. So electricity for EVs would not be a constraint. The technology for charging stations is available and the investment for setting up a charging station is modest.
