There are currently around 90 cities that India's Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) identified as critically polluted. Particulate matter (PM), especially fine particulate matter (PM2.5), dominates the concern. Other air pollutants such as NO2, ozone (O3), and air toxics are also problematic.

This new working paper by ICCT identifies the most effective technologies for CO2, emissions and safety measures and maps the status of regulatory programs for 2- and 3-wheeler management in Asian countries.

Governments are looking to fiscal policy to enhance & reinforce standards-based approaches to reducing vehicle emissions. This report analyzes taxes & incentives applied to new private passenger vehicles in eight of the world’s leading auto markets -the United Kingdom, the United States, France, Germany, Brazil, China, India, and Japan.
