Unfortunate on Delhi’s part that it is witnessing this kind of severe pollution. To overcome this situation where pollution levels have become life-threatening, the Prime minister of India along with other departments has decided to launch a new panel.
This panel will be chaired by the Vice-Chairman of NITI Ayog, Mr. Rajiv Kumar. The objective of this panel is to control air pollution in capital cities and other city-specific issues. Cities which are covered under this panel are Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune.
The panel includes Principal scientist Advisor( PSA), K Vijay Raghavan and Tarun Khanna of Harvard business school. They are supposed to submit the report to the respected Prime Minister of India within two weeks. Committee will look at the efforts made by 40 research Institutions to find solutions for the major 4 cities.
On the basis of reports, suggestions will be made to tackle the most dangerous problem of the hour. The Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, All India Institute of Medical Services, Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology and Delhi University are among the ones who are already in the process of finding ways to curb pollution levels.
The PSA’s office will have a cabinet Note to seek approval of this report. It is suggested that if 4-5 cities come together in order to tackle this problem and support each other to solve this problem through financial aid, then research will become much powerful and will take up speedy steps.
