5 lakh govt vehicles to be converted into eco-friendly vehicles: Prakash Javadekar

Minister for Environment and Climate Change Prakash Javadekar today said that all the 5 lakh government vehicles on conventional fuel will be converted into e-vehicles in a phased manner. He said, besides their cost-effectiveness, these e-vehicles are eco-friendly and save consumption of petrol and diesel. Addressing the media during flagging-off the electric vehicles procured by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting in New Delhi, Mr. Javadekar said, that these e-vehicles can play major role in curbing high level of pollution in Delhi during winters.

He said, the government under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken several initiatives to reduce the pollution level.  The Information and Broadcasting Minister said, during the last 15 years only discussions were done on the issue of pollution but the NDA-led government has taken concrete steps to address the menace. He said, construction of eastern peripheral expressway has resulted into low level of pollution in Delhi-NCR.
