India to develop own certification facility for air pollution monitoring equipment
Local certification would help bring down costs and improve the measurement of air pollution and help scrutinize it
Govt asks the grossly polluting industries to submit real time data to the CPCB, which then evaluates whether a firm is complying with regulatory norms
NEW DELHI : The National Physical Laboratory (NPL), one of the country’s premier research and development units, is developing India’s own certification facility for air pollution monitoring equipment. The move could boost the ‘Make in India’ initiative as NPL expects demand for such equipment to soar as part of the centre’s National Clean Air Programme (NCAP).
