Deteriorating air quality in Indian cities is a growing and serious concern. A major cause of this is the increasing emissions from the rapidly growing transport sector. To curb this, while stricter emission and fuel efficiency standards are required for new vehicles, there is also a need to have better inspection and maintenance practices for in-use vehicles. In this context, Shakti initiated this project to conduct research on reforming the in-use vehicle testing and compliance mechanism.
