TOPICS / Vehicle emissions control in India


If India is to reap the full social and economic benefits of increased mobility, the country must find effective ways to address the negative consequences of rising transportation activity, such as declining air quality, increasing reliance on fossil fuel imports, and climate change.

The ICCT is completing a long-term study of India’s program to regulate and control emissions from light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles—cars, motorcycles, trucks, and buses. Below is a collection of materials related to that study.
