Need for Integrated Approach

Vehicular Pollution Control in Delhi

Many command and control instruments, such as banning old commercial vehicles and banning leaded petrol have been implemented to curb Delhi's air pollution. This paper is an attempt to investigate whether these efforts have led to a commensurate fall in air pollution in Delhi.

The containment of vehicular pollution requires an integrated approach, with combined use of transport policies and air pollution control instruments.
