My Suggestions to Delhi Government on Fight with Air Pollution

Pollution in New Delhi is now at an Emergency Situation. With HighCourt comparing living in Delhi with Gas Chamber, here are my suggestions on Fighting Pollution

 

 

Pollution in New Delhi - Government Step

We are in a state of war and the war is with Pollution which is impacting all of us by showing how dreadly it can be by contaminating Air which we breathe every second

Pollution in New Delhi is at its Peaks and crossing all deadly levels, Appreciate in Government focus and NGT Recommendation in making a sincere attempt by thinking of alternates for curbing down air Pollution from

» Stopping in Registration of 15 year Old Vehicles - Executed

» Intending to Impose Ban 10 Year Old Diesel Vehicles 

» Now Considering Odd Number Cars to Ply on Odd dates (1st, 3rd, 5th etc )and even number registration numbers Cars to be ply on roads on alternate days (2nd, 4th, 6th and so on) or vice versa for week to Fortnight.

But is it good enough - possibly No.

 

My Suggestions to Government for Curbing Pollution

As Resident of Delhi - My 4 Suggestions for fighting with Pollution:-

» Suggestion - 1: Starting from Schools, Colleges – As per Delhi Government report - It's estimated that there are over 5000 Schools (almost 55% Government Schools and 45% Private Schools) with estimated 37 Lakh Students.

Though – there is School Transport. But – still a likely proportion of Parents Drop and Pick Children on their Own (including me). Let the Schools Buses be Affordable and Mandatory. A Bus can accommodate in 40 Students – while there would be almost 30 to 40 cars from Parents to drop in and then coming for picking kids. Make the School buses affordable (on working at no Profit – no loss) and give it a chance by turning them mandatory for. 

Even if 15% of School Kids, comes to their own – for 4.5 Lakh Kids – let 10000 Bus be added instead of 4 Lakh Vehicles Plying for Picking and Dropping Kids – to prevent in Air Pollution.

» Suggestion -2: Make Odd-Even not for a week but for months: Winters are the time when Pollution level remains high. I strongly recommend to make Odd-Even something without fear for the entire winter season from Diwali to Holi. Make Odd-Even something for months which will make lesser number of cars on roads, lesser traffic by giving Delhi a space much needed.

Ensure that for New Cars sold - People should not get a number of choice, rather computerized draw for allocating random number should be there.

People in past have encouraged pools, your support needed in fixing fares without any surge fares of Cabs, Auto Rickshaw, Electric Rickshaw. Also – improve in Bus connectivity with Trained and Polite Drivers, Conductors with Clean Buses, Metro Connectivity. Take help of Police to have Traffic Police on roads on Day and Late Evening to infuse Safety. It will go a long way in improving Public Transport system.

To disclaim – I have 2 cars in family and both are odd number cars.

» Suggestion - 3: Improve in Modern AC Buses with Wifi during Office Hours  - Let focus and invest in making Bus Transport World Class with AC Buses (Plying every 5 minutes from 7 am to 11 am) and in the evening from (5 pm to 11 pm), To test on a pilot – may start off with locations with peak Jam to visit in Prime Office Complexes Well Informed Bus Staff of Conduct or with Buses is absolute Clean, Cushioned Seats along with Wifi in Buses will let Car Owners to consider choosing in Buses instead of Cars.

If required speak with Operators having Luxury Buses to use them. People wont mind spending money on Transport Buses, if getting a World Class Service. At the end - they will still save money than driving there own vehicle.

» Suggestion - 4: Incentivizing Car Owners to Go Green – New Car Sales can't be stopped in any or either way. Per Capita Cars to Population is around 20 Cars per 1000 People. Also the business Model - Livelihood of People working in Automobile companies, Dealerships or Spare parts along with associated businesses and GDP Contribution is Significant. Car Sales will keep on happening and rather grow in with new launches happening aggressively. However – what can likely be done is to kindly promote CNG in Private Vehicles.

Encourage in More CNG Fuel Stations for easy availability of CNG as Clean Fuel.

Have talks with Manufacturers to seek and provide CNG Compatibility on Existing Cars at Subsidized rates, and also Incentives New Car Owners in the form of Zero Road Tax on CNG Cars. In partnership with OEM Makers – make Existing Car Owners well informed on CNG Benefits in the form of low running costs and Government Waiver of Zero Road Tax on CNG Cars.  

Though these are just handful of 4 suggestion - Am sure - this would go a long way in curbing down Air Pollution, Traffic Jams without causing an Inconvenience to People of New Delhi.

Today pollution is prime issue and needs to be curbed at any cost.
Now a days we have all communication facilities like telephone, internet, e-mail, conference calling etc. which enables us to work from home.
Hence, "Work from Home" policy should be adopted at least for two days a week, wherever possible which may help in reducing traffic on roads and thus reducing pollution. It will save time (commutation time) fuel, and Air Pollution which is needs to be curbed at any cost.
It will lead to happy and healthy life for coming generations.
It will be more effective than odd even formula as less people will move out thus reducing traffic on roads and in public transport too.

I want to reach the scientific advisers of PM and CM with following request please help

SOAP BUBBLES IN THE AIR WILL COLLECT THE POLLUTANT PARTICLES WITH EFFICIENCY. Will help to form heavier micelles that will fall on the earth. It is not difficult to promote. From all the high rise buildings children can play soap bubble fair. Arranging some bubble cannon from the high rise may also be a simple technology. Please pass these to scientific adviser to honorable PM.

I have a suggestion regarding environmental development.
i think environment can balance through a new tax method: TREE TAX.
Tax methods:
1. Everyone have to keep 1 tree per 1 cent of land. If he fails to do so he has to pay a tree tax of 100/- per year per tree
2. Example: If a person having 5cent land, he is bounded to plant and maintain 5 trees. If he plant only 3trees he have to pay 200/- per annual.
3. If someone plants more trees, he will get reduction of 100/- per tree, per year from his other taxes (like building tax, land tax).
4. Example: If a person having 5cent land, And if he plant 8 trees (one tree more than he bounded to plant) he will get a reduction of 300/- per Annam from his building tax or land tax or any other tax.
People have the tendency to do things which affect their money directly. We can use that tendency in tree planting through TREE TAX method.
(My opinion only)

sir,Its really wonderful that something is being thought of regarding pollution,but let me say something what i think is essentially required ,has anyone thought of the footpaths which are blocked/encroached? were is the space for a person to walk leave alone the space to drive,so the problem is all the roads have to be free from encroachments,free from potholes,properly & periodically carpeted,maintain signal lights,make all the drivers learn basic driving rules and not the least an harsh and heavy penalty for rule breakers as its in almost all the other part of the world.if the road is free from potholes and every one is sure enough were he has to turn ,to my best of knowledge travel time will be reduced and will be less pollutant.
