squeezed between Ukraine and European Union member Romania, 3 per cent,11 per cent respectively Even if these estimates are off by some percentage points they do give a clear signal Pollution in our cities and villages is not going to be reduced in a hurry Certainly not by focusing on Delhi alone and not by diluting ournational environmental clearance norms For example even if we did not let any trucks enter Delhi the quality of air would improve by less than 10 per cent but significantly worsen the lives of those living in villages and towns alongthe bypasses The overall health of Indian citizens may not improve at all Similarly banning cars more than 15 years old will not make any difference at all because their numbers are insignificant The only way out is to develop a long-term policy that cuts across all sectors contributing to pollution Such policies must be nationwide and target problems at source The most effective policy would be to set ambitious targets to provide the cleanest petrol and diesel of the same quality all over India This would reduce pollution significantly from vehicles industry gensets and construction at the same time After the assurance of clean fuels is in place we must force the auto industry to adopt Bharat VI fuel emission norms for all vehicles by 2020 by an accelerated programme of technology upgradation In parallel well-funded technological taskforces need to be set up to do detailed studies to reduce energy consumption and emissions from brick kilns construction and the domestic sector However just focusing on technologies alone is not enough A few years ago we did a joint study in collaboration with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to forecast pollution and health scenarios in Delhi and London in 2030 In both settings we found that the transportation scenarios that reduce greenhouse gas emissions by reducing motor vehicle use and increasing active travel (walking cycling public transport) bring much larger health benefits than those that focus on the uptake of cleaner motor vehicles Motor vehicle ownership appears to have stabilised in London but it will not for some time in Delhi Therefore increase in vehicle numbers in Delhi overpowers technology-based solutions The trick is to move towards relatively less use of private motor vehicles even if ownership may increase Studies from Europe indicate that vehicular pollution in a city is directly related to the total area devoted to roads for cars and motorcycles This is because roads always get filled up with vehicles as soon as more space is provided We have ample evidence of this from the roads being jam-packed with vehicles along metro corridors in Delhi The successful solutions being implemented are to reduce space for cars along the congested corridors by reserving lanes for trams or buses even on narrow roads and reducing parking availability and making it expensive This reduces car use particularly if spaces for walking and cycling are made safer and more attractive We have not touched upon other solutions that involve mixed land use planning mixing of rich and poor neighbourhoods discouraging gated communities smoothening traffic flow at relatively lower velocities with appropriate road design and having smaller blocks in city design All these will go a long way in improving the quality of life

political party or any government It’s purely a citizen revolution" These homes have allegedly been built on land belonging to local businessmen rich farmers and others And he intends to provide for 2000 houses by next year In a report by The Economic Times Gandhi said that he intends to have this project carried forward by a team of digital experts who would together put up a website and app to make the donation process simpler and connect small villages to the rest of the world He categorically insisted that he wanted the housing initiative to be non-election related disapproving of the sloganeering by a few workers and stating that he "believed in the legacy of goodwill" such as the work done by his father Sanjay Gandhi and his mother Maneka Gandhi In a Times of India report he
