The Commission for Air Quality Management in National Capital Region and Adjoining Areas on 08.02.2022 has issued Regulations for use of Power Generating Sets for effective control of air pollution in Delhi-NCR. It is provided that in industrial areas where gas pipeline infrastructure is not available, DG sets not retrofitted to run in a hybrid mode, shall be permitted to run only for a maximum of one(l) hour a day. To facilitate effective implementation of the above noted directions of the Commission, the respective power distribution companies and agencies responsible in the NCR shall provide un-interrupted power supply, particularly during the winter months, so as to facilitate mitigating adverse air quality owing to a large-scale use of alternative power generating systems. The above directions shall take effect in strict force w.e.f. 01.01.2022.
