  • 3. Population Explosion and Pollution Escalation As per the 2011 census, metropolitan cities like Mumbai (20.7 mil), Delhi (16.3 mil), Kolkata (14.7 mil), etc., turn out to be the most populous ones. On 1st January 2016, the Delhi government introduced the “Odd-Even” scheme, for a trial period of 15 days, as a gesture to reduce the soaring spm levels of the city A social media survey conducted by NetImpact Solutions showed that 34% of Delhiites were supportive of the odd-even scheme while 45% of those decided to give the scheme a test of time.
  • 4. The Issue of Massive Vehicle Density With ever growing population in metro cities vehicle density is increasing, which is the major cause of pollution. This leads to issues like parking, congestion in traffic , accidents and what not. An EY report says that the number of passenger vehicles will go up from 29 million in 2015 to more than 48 million vehicles by 2020. Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) claimed that personal and passenger vehicles from outside states account for 22% of the total particulate load which is not only undercutting pollution control efforts in Delhi but also making enormous demand for land for parking facilities.
  • 5. Enormous Consumption of Fossil Fuels The primary energy consumption in India is the third-highest in the world. This implies huge amounts of fuel import and its consumption at a very massive rate. In the year 2013, India imported approximately 144 million tons of crude oil alone. Minimization in the use of fuel in our day to day lives can be instrumental in bringing down such huge consumption figures. This will not only decrease the import quantity of fuels but will also help in the forex reserves of our country to remain intact.
  • 6. Time Spent In Traveling Commuters in India spend a huge chunk of their time behind the wheel. According to a survey, 49% of the respondents spend more than 100 minutes driving their car every day. Rather than getting caught up in such hassles, one could easily spend more time doing something productive and hence contributing to the overall economic development of the society.
