What is National Clean Air Programme or NCAP?

Education Information

Haven't you read news reports about the thick smog that engulfs our capital city Delhi and some of our industrialised cities? What can the government and the citizens do to make our air quality better and help us breathe fresh air? The India Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change has launched the National Clean Air Programme (NCAP) setting a target of reduction by 20-30% PM 2.5 and PM 10 concentration in 102 cities. Already 84 cities have submitted their plans. It is a 5-year action plan to control and abate air pollution across the country.
