The Gujarat government has started a novel emissions trading programme aimed to cut particulate air pollution and facilitate robust economic growth.
Chief minister Vijay Rupani launched the pilot programme on Wednesday in Surat, a densely populated industrial centre with a significant number of polluting textile and dye mills. The government claims this is the first such programme of its kind and will be a model for the rest of the country and the world.
