Hon’ble Lt. Governor of Delhi, Sh. Anil Baijal advised Municipal Corporations of Delhi to optimize use of Mechanical Road Sweepers to combat air pollution in Delhi. The issue of air pollution has multidimensional aspects and the Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) have an important role in tackling this menace.

Hon’ble Lt. Governor stated that one of the major contributors to air pollution in Delhi is Particulate Matter (PM) produced through resuspension of road dust caused by moving traffic. Source apportionment studies have also indicated that substantial portion of the PM 10 in air in Delhi is caused by road dust. He further stated that one of the ways to remove this Particulate matter pollution load from city’s environment is through mechanical sweeping. Compared to manual sweeping, mechanical sweeping removes significantly more amount of fine particulate matter from paved roads, thus reducing air borne particulate matter and improving local air quality.

At present, 45 Mechanical Road Sweepers (MRSs) in Delhi are being operated by three Corporations and New Delhi Municipal Council. These MRSs have been specifically procured to combat rising air pollution in the city.Therefore, it is extremely important to ensure that these are used at optimum efficiency.

In this regard, Hon’ble Lt Governor advised all ULBs to initiate necessary action as per the available expert advice/ third party audit report and ensure optimum utilization of MRSs in Delhi. The ULBs were also advised to carry out scientific assessment of requirement of additional MRSs (if any) in their jurisdiction to improve sanitation operations.Clean roads will lead to clean air in Delhi.
