Analysing Industrial Fuel Policy in Delhi NCR States

January 22, 2021

Given the severity of pollution in the region, a majority of the NCR states have released a list of approved fuels. Yet, most of the industries here have not switched to cleaner fuels. One major reason observed for the reluctance to switch to cleaner fuels was the lack of an integrated and robust fuel policy which brings together all relevant stakeholders on one platform and ensures rapid, affordable, and sufficient delivery of cleaner fuel to all industrial areas. This paper studies the roadblocks preventing a clear fuel policy that would lead to a smooth transition of industries to cleaner fuel. Some questions being answered in the paper are: Are all the fuels in the approved lists nonpolluting? If they are polluting, why have they not been prohibited? Why are industries not switching to cleaner fuels at a higher rate?
