TERI suggests a 10 point action plan towards cleaning India’s air


The five-year National Clean Air Programme (NCAP) was launched by the government in January 2019 with the targets to decrease PM2.5 and PM10 by 20-30 percent with 2017 as the base year. TERI's recent analysis of air quality data shows a directionally positive movement, but many measures need to be taken to strengthen the National Clean Air Programme.

At a two-day roundtable consultation co-organised by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and AirQualityAsia (AQA), TERI presented recommendations to strengthen NCAP. The two-day discussions brought together a diverse group of stakeholders for providing answers to India's challenge of poor air quality. With these measures, the ambition of NCAP can be raised from its current levels of 20-30% reduction in particulate concentrations. Read 10-point action plan to clean India's air below:
