Cutting urban carbon footprint

The central government is in the process of preparing a roadmap for building 8,000km of pavements and laying more cycle tracks in 106 cities in the next five years to promote walking and cycling and to reduce carbon footprint in urban areas. The Minister of Urban Development plans to lay 1,300km BRTS corridors, set up 500 new bus depots and promote use of electric and hybrid vehicles under Green Transport Scheme. The scheme will involve investment worth nearly Rs 80,000Cr and will benefit about 22Cr urban population.
