Yes, that is it. Reasons are many. Prime reason is the automobile population and lack of vegetation cover. Private vehicles purchase should be restricted and discouraged by keeping vehicle loan interest high and also tax high.Our development starts with cutting trees. That should stop first. Quarries are working in thousands -licensed and unauthoised- most patronised by political parties and leaders. That should stop. Airlines are brought in like taxi cars. Upper layer is polluted. Who will control that? Soil has lost its gluing capacity,that makes dust fly and remain in air. Road surfaces are covered with the tyre withering particles. That with the chemicals used in tyre manufacture pollute the air most.Thermal power plants contaminate the surrounding environment.
