New Delhi: All government agencies of Delhi, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan on Monday came out with their joint three-month action plan to check air pollution in the national capital region.
The action plan include strict action against polluting vehicles in Delhi, phasing out of 18 coal-based industrial units in Ghaziabad, ban on registration of non-BS IV compliant vehicles in Haryana and stepping up efforts to phase out three old polluting power-generating units of the NTPC’s Badarpur Thermal Power Plant in the Capital.
The action plan was prepared in a joint meeting of environment ministers/officers of Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh here. The meeting was chaired by the Union environment and forests minister Prakash Javadekar.
Review of works and their implementation on the three-month action plan will be done in first or second week of July.
“Thereafter, the governments of three states and Delhi will come out with their joint medium-term and long-term plan to curb air pollution in the entire national capital region”, said Javadekar.
Setting up of biomass burning helplines in Haryana, UP and Rajasthan on the line of similar set up in Delhi, strict implementation of ban on post-harvest stubble burning and setting up a number of bio-waste treatment plants by MCD and NDMC in the Capital are some of the other works which will carried out by the respective state governments as part of the three-month action plan by June.
