CEPT, IIM-A, IIT-D to help tier -II cities go green

Published On: 20 Jul 2012

 | Last Updated On: 20 Jul 2012

In a bid to turn Rajkot, Vishakapatnam and Udaipur into pollution free cities, IIM-A (Indian Institute of Management – Ahmedabad), IIT-D (Indian Institute of Technology –Delhi) and CEPT (Center for Environmental Planning and Technology) University have undertaken a project.

The objective is to help civic authorities in establishing an eco-friendly transport system in these cities with lesser CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) emission rate.

This is a unique project of its kind funded by UNEP (United Nations Environment project). CEPT will be responsible for mobility and inclusiveness while IIT-D will look after the technology and IIM-A will lay out a plan for pollution free, low carbon transportation.

The initiative is a part of a project known as ‘Promoting Lo Carbon Transport in India’ approved by the environment and urban development ministries aiming for carbon free transportation by the year 2050.

An assistant professor of CEPT University has been appointed as consultant for the project. University aims at encouraging public transport and reducing use of motor vehicles.

Sources from IIM-A revealed that they are aiming tier-II cities. The methods adopted will vary for each city depending on various factors such as climate. Metro rail service is in the pipeline for cities such as Rajkot. A study on freight movement in India will also be included as a part of the project and various eco-friendly alternatives will be suggested for the existing modes of transportation and practices.
