Through India’s Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC) commitment, India envisages a target to reduce the emissions intensity of GDP by 33 to 35 percent by 2030, from 2005 levels, using low carbon emission strategies. In this context, it is important to create a GHG emission inventory every year, which will assist policy makers to develop plans and strategies by monitoring sectoral progress towards emissions reduction.
