Pune city’s main problem in these days is traffic problem which automatically brings the problem of air pollution. According to survey, city’s air pollution levels are that high that if we compare total pollution in all other 4 metro cities like Lucknow, Bhopal, Vijayawada and Kochi, then also Pune would be on higher side.
Fuel i.e. Petrol and Diesel used by these four cities equals the use of fuel only in Pune city. Survey was taken for 14 cities by Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) regarding pollution levels. According to it Pune is on the sixth place in the list. There is rising demand for the fuel for vehicles which leads to increased air pollution. Number of private vehicles like two wheelers, four wheelers is rising day by day in city which is the main cause of air pollution.
It is definitely an alarming situation for our city. Main cause of many diseases spreading in city is polluted air. So we can try from our side by use of public transport and bicycles as and when possible, this will at least reduce some amount of pollution.
