Solar Policy, 2016

The Government of NCT of Delhi (GNCTD) considers solar power to be the most viable form of green energy in Delhi. It has the potential of lowering the state's expenditure on energy, strengthening its energy security, and reducing its reliance on unsustainable fossil fuels. To attain this potential, rapid capacity addition in solar power is needed. Hence, it is deemed necessary to have a Delhi Solar Energy Policy for the promotion of solar power plants.



Transport Policy

The present transport system is characterized by road traffic congestion with declining ambient air quality accompanied by a rising trend in road accidents. The focus of all efforts need to be on reducing congestion, improving air quality by lower levels of vehicular pollution and enhancing road safety while improving amenities for commuters.
