Maharashtra to spend bulk of clean air funds on electrifying public transport

By Prof Anjal Prakash Dec 19, 2021

Sharing his thoughts about the Maharashtra Government plan to spend the majority of clean air funding on electrifying public transport under its EV Policy 2021, Anjal Prakash says, “Diverting about 80% of the FC funds towards EVs could be thought through. Cities also face other sources of air pollution, from poor waste management practices to rampant construction and industrial emissions. These areas are equally deserving of targeted policies and interventions. I would urge Maharashtra to balance out the funds among other sectors”. Read the story in Hindustan Times.
