'Require policy to boost adoption of auto LPG'

Indian Auto LPG Coalition (IAC) has called for the immediate implementation of a policy to boost the adoption of auto LPG in the country. Suyash Gupta, Director General, Indian Auto LPG Coalition noted that the country has not been able to address the vehicular pollution part of the larger pollution problem in our cities, we have failed to make any considerable breakthrough on the urban pollution issue confronting the country.

An immediate policy push to auto LPG substituting for the toxic gas-emitting petrol and diesel, shall not only serve to contain the health fallout of life-threatening emissions of carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, oxides of sulphur and the particulate matter, among several others, that impinge on the health of our city-dwellers, it would also curtail the carbon-footprint of vehicular movement thereby helping India get closer to meeting its climate change and global warming commitments in the context of Paris Agreement, Gupta said.
