CSE Press Release: Petrol price hike is 'mindless'

CSE slams petrol price hike as “mindless” as it does not narrow the price gap with diesel

  • This is leading to gross misuse of diesel by rich car owners and massive revenue losses to the government

  • The government should either ban use of diesel in cars or increase price of diesel and tax on diesel cars

Proposed fuel economy standards a complete sell-out, says CSE

  • Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) releases proposed fuel economy standards for cars -- CSE lambasts them as too little too late.

  • The standards require car manufactures to do nothing until 2015 and only a marginal improvement thereafter.

Orientation Programme on Managing Urban Air Quality: Focus on Clean Vehicle Technology and Fuels

The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is organising a three-day orientation programme at New Delhi from September 25 – 27, 2012 for policy makers from different cities of India and South Asia. The objective of this forum is to promote good regulatory practices in air quality management, clean vehicle technology, fuels and management of in-use fleet and mobility management. Managing urban air quality is turning out to be a serious governance challenge in cities. More than half of Indian cities are reeling under serious particulate pollution.

Budget skirts the real issues, does not do enough for environmental concerns: CSE

  • Finance minister loses courage to put fiscal breaks on SUVs and diesel cars

  • Budget fails to put forward any new proposal to strengthen bus transport

Front Page Teaser: 

Why is the Finance Minister so willing to allow the rich car owners to mis-use diesel subsidy? Why he wants to forego revenue from this luxury consumption and put peoples’ health and energy security at risk? There is also no support for the bus transport for the masses.
