The Transport Department plans to crack down on faulty emission centers as part of a plan to curb air pollution in the state.

Bengaluru: Nov 23, 2018
This year, in an attempt to control emission level, the transport department is set to test emission levels for 25 lakh vehicles.
“We have organized events for controlling vehicular air pollution and workshops for workers at emission centers in the state. There are 1100 emission centers with frequent inspections,” says Om Kareshwari, Joint Commissioner of Transport Department.
The commissioner also said the city has about 80 lakhs vehicles. This is one of the main causes of air pollution. One of the measures taken is the banning of older vehicles, and diesel vehicles.
A.N. Yellappa Reddy, an environmentalist said, “The Transport Department should go to the places where there is large movement of vehicles and take action against them. Also, most certificates are fake and the transport department must check the vehicle before issuing the certificate.”
