MonitorIndia : Infrastructure -NITI Aayog, the government’s think tank, has given the go-ahead to the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) for permitting the use of six new transport technologies. The proposal, aimed at improving the public transport sector in India, carries forward some of the ideas from the Aayog’s earlier proposal in March that recommended only electric vehicles for public transport, phasing out diesel vehicles and adopting the SkyTran and Hyperloop.The new policy proposal, however, deals entirely with newer technology that can change how we look at public transport.

MonitorIndia : Infrastructure - Potholes on India’s roads have long provoked dark humour, manifesting in jokes, cartoons and now songs and videos. But it’s no laughing matter. It’s time to get very angry when people die or are maimed because of these manifestations of the apathy and callousness of those responsible for providing public services.

  How the Ganga and GST are hijacking India’s clean energy fund  
MonitorIndia : Infrastructure - To say India has an unhealthy appetite for coal would be an understatement. Last year, coal production in India peaked at over 600 million tonnes and imports brought in an additional 200 million tonnes to the country’s shores. But even as the Indian government lobbies for climate finance and justice internationally, its own schemes of incentivising research and innovation in clean energy are threatened by its policies. One such scheme is the Clean Energy Cess on Coal (renamed the Clean Environment Cess in 2017) and the National Clean Energy Fund (renamed the National Clean Energy and Environment Fund in 2017) born out of it.
