AAP Govt Announces Rs 2 Crores In Seed Fund For Startups / Ideas That Can Combat Delhi Pollution

The Delhi government will provide Rs 2 crore or more in seed fending to ‘promising’ startups/companies that can come up with sustainable ideas on pollution and environment control.

The recent move came after Delhi’s pollution levels were declared ‘hazardous’, as the US embassy’s monitoring station recorded an air quality index of 372. The new appeal by the government could be a promising way out of all the criticism it received recently, after the media and the public thrashed the government for its inefficiency.

Delhi city surprisingly overtook Tokyo in terms of population; data suggests that the number has gone up to 25 million in 2014–doubled since 1990, says a report complied by the UN.

    JUST HAVE A LOOK THAT HOW THE IMPOSTOR BJP-LED-CIVIC-BODIES ARE MANIPULATING THE TAXPAYERS’ MONEY !!!!!

    Deputy CM Manish Sisodia also brought the “budgetary papers of the MCDs” to show how the money allocated for sanitation workers by MCD commissioners had been diverted towards making stadia, swimming pools and street dog vaccination.

  2. Aap govt ko Delhi ki har imaarat ki chhat pr chhote ped paudhe lagana jaroori kr dena chhaiye. Jo is na maane us pr jurmaana lagana chhaiye

  3. In my opinion, traffic situation and pollution are directly linked.

    Major impact can be achieved by fixing notorious traffic jam points like kalindi kunj, DND, Ashram.

    Fix roads to ensure proper traffic flow at these points, Deploy extra personnel to check traffic violators, increase fines for violators. Increase monitoring and fines for polluting vehicles, e.g. heavy duty trucks buses etc.
