Budget skirts the real issues, does not do enough for environmental concerns: CSE

  • Finance minister loses courage to put fiscal breaks on SUVs and diesel cars

  • Budget fails to put forward any new proposal to strengthen bus transport

Why is the Finance Minister so willing to allow the rich car owners to mis-use diesel subsidy? Why he wants to forego revenue from this luxury consumption and put peoples’ health and energy security at risk? There is also no support for the bus transport for the masses.

Why Volunteer?

The present environmental crisis has thrown up a new set of challenges for India and its citizens. Like most developing countries, India needs to seize every opportunity to grow, but do so in a sustainable manner. We cannot follow the highly toxic development model of the West and need to look inward for solutions to our problems. Awareness of these issues is however sorely lacking in the country. By volunteering for the programme you can enrich yourself with a wealth of knowledge and a perspective that will enable you to contribute meaningfully to society and to your profession.
