According to sources a study has found that even if air pollution is reduced by 30% by 2024 as set by National Clean Air Program (NCAP), seven cities including Bengaluru will still continue to breathe polluted air above the NAAQS even in 2024. Meanwhile other than Bengaluru, the other Karnataka cities that breathe air worse than NAAQ are Bidar, Tumakuru, Belgaum, Bijapur, Raichur, Devanagere, Hubbali, Mangaluru, Karwar and Kolar.



Reportedly the findings were released by Greenpeace India as part its Airpocalypse III report on Tuesday, which identified 139 cities across India where air pollution levels exceed national standards but these were not included in the NCAP. Furthermore in fact, only 12 of the 43 Smart Cities planned by the government comply with the NAAQ standards and this omission is due to the fact that the list of non-attainment cities in the NCAP was drawn together using data from the years 2011-2015.

Moreover Dahiya added “We are calling on the MoEF&CC to update the list with 2017 data to reduce air pollution in as many highly polluted cities as possible, to make this as ‘national’ a programme as possible and help us move towards a Clean Air Nation”.
