The WHO'S new Air quality norms on pollution stun India as India is already unable to catch the pace with previous norms. India stands low among other countries in terms of air quality and to match with upgraded norms will certainly put India into a tough situation. India's 10 cities including New Delhi are already among top 20 in polluted cities of the world and chasing new norms will bring more cities into the table which is really a matter of great concern.
India is significantly working hard in diverse fields to mitigate the effects of pollution like building roads, planting trees, capping carbon emitting industries and becoming member nation for climate change in terms of accepting norms of climate change, reducing stubble burning and placing gas services by the Ujjwala scheme. India also works in renewable energy and becomes pioneer to cope with other countries in International Solar Alliance. India is committed to 2015 Paris climate deal as well and working to contribute its efforts to bring more effective changes in planets. Indian needs to bring both the industries that is ministries of environment and health and also bring other partners in channel to drastically reduce the pollution level. In terms of wildlife, plants etc., it is also quite essential to get together all the partners to maintain conducive environment for all. However, WHO's norms pose a herculean task on India but an indomitable will power is in need of the hour. If India wants to touch the milestone, it will have to speed up the pace and then we can have a better place that we imagined of so as to give to our posterity such a legacy.
