The Indian Government has been busy developing green initiatives across the country and the country is looking forward to the announcement of its green policies in the coming weeks.
In his Independence Day speech, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the government will create the green agenda by the end of this year.
“I am committed to a 100% green agenda in the country.
We will do all we can to ensure that our green initiatives are well thought out and implemented,” Modi said.
The prime minister said the plan is to create a new environment for India’s development by establishing a National Green Mission (NGM) to oversee the implementation of the government’s green initiatives.
The NGM would include the environment and the environment sector.
In a bid to reduce CO2 emissions, the government is likely to seek a reduction in the price of coal and reduce its impact on the economy.
However, the price is expected to remain low as the government has already set a target of Rs 3,000 per tonne of coal.
The government is also expected to ensure a sustainable and equitable distribution of energy, particularly for power generation.
The government has also set up an ambitious target to reduce the energy demand by 40% by 2022.
The NGM has also been put on hold till November 1 and the government said that it was also postponing the launch of a new green scheme that was due to be announced in the next few days.
