Haryana unveils robust plan for enhancing air quality in Delhi-NCR

In a major step towards tackling air pollution in the Delhi-NCR region, Haryana Chief Secretary Sanjeev Kaushal disclosed the state's action plan for the year 2024-25. The plan focuses on transitioning the state's bus fleet to cleaner alternatives, including electric, CNG, and BS-VI diesel buses.

Kaushal shared this information after participating in a virtual meeting convened by the Union Cabinet Secretary on air quality management in Delhi and the NCR region. The plan includes stringent timelines and action items for the replacement of BS-III/IV Diesel Buses.

E-Buses for Gurugram and Faridabad:

Kaushal stated that State Transport Haryana has finalized the procurement of 375 e-buses under the Gross Cost Contract (GCC) model for operation in nine Municipal Corporation cities of Haryana. He assured that all 375 e-buses would be inducted by June 2024. Mr. Kaushal also mentioned the procurement of 200 e-buses through the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), initiated for induction in Gurugram and Faridabad (100 e-buses each).

The induction of all 200 e-buses is expected to be completed by December 2024. State Transport Haryana plans to add 500 new Standard BS-VI diesel buses and 150 HVAC BS-VI diesel buses meeting the latest BS-VI emission norms during the financial year 2024-25. All these proposed new buses will be inducted into the bus fleet by November 2024, he added.

He emphasized that only BS-VI compliant buses will be in operation by all depots of Haryana destined for Delhi. All BS-III compliant buses will be phased out from NCR depots before October 2024. All State-owned BS-IV compliant buses of adjoining cities of Delhi, namely Faridabad, Gurugram, and Sonipat, will be transferred to Non-NCR depots by October 2024. In their place, BS-VI compliant diesel buses will be allotted, enhancing the fleet's environmental sustainability.
