Delhi has the worst air quality among all capital cities in the world. It has been worse than that of Beijing this winter.
We expect USD6bn of electric vehicles especially buses and commercial trucks owned by transport companies and transport authorities should be replaced on priority. Private sector and individuals can also move to electric vehicles from their diesel vehicles.
We suggest initiate a project by buying 100,000 passenger cars and 20,000 buses and trucks for cleaning Delhi’s air by 20%. The cost is just USD6bn from vehicle owners and not from the government.
