Drones May Kick In To Help Tackle Air Pollution In Delhi

The National Green Tribunal wants to solve the problem of burning waste in the country, which has helped make air pollution worse.

It’s all over the news, Delhi is filled in smog right now. And sure, this is not the only place suffering, but it’s among the places where the situation is the worst. Now, the government is considering using drones to address some of the causes of this.

In particular, the National Green Tribunal, which deals with matters relating to India’s environmental health, wants to solve the problem of burning waste in the country. And the problem here is that somehow, people in our country still do this in the 21st century.

And the National Green Tribunal wants to tackle this using drones.

A bench headed by Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel, the chairperson of NGT, expresses his concern over the increase of burning in Delhi. In addition, they noted that the city has 50 sanitation inspectors only that would ensure such incidents won’t happen while there should be 5,000 of them instead.

According to the bench, the thing they’re lacking is implementation. They said that people in were burning garbage freely, which they have seen it themselves. There must be a solution to this and they think technology can help prevent garbage burning.

Basically, they can mount cameras on drones so that fewer officials can cover a larger area to monitor waste burning incidents. And this approach doesn’t need a huge investment, they only need enough money for buying drones as well as training the personnel that will use them.

Besides, NGT suggested local corporations offer jobs to civil defence groups and unemployed youth to monitor waste burning. The bench said:

They also knew that this happened not only because of garbage burning but also due to industrial emissions, fireworks, stubble burning, as well as vehicles.
