Air pollution control measures can avoid 1,900 deaths in two Bihar cities by 2030: Report

Two reports submitted to Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi on Wednesday have claimed mortality due to air pollution could go up to 550 deaths in Gaya and 650 deaths in Muzaffarfur, two large cities in the state, by 2030.

Air pollution led to 270 deaths in Gaya and 350 deaths in 2018. Both Gaya and Muzaffarpur are among the non-attainment cities identified by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB).

The reports on Comprehensive Clean Air Action Plans for Gaya and Muzaffarpur, which were released by Modi in an online event, are prepared by Center for Study of Science, Technology and Policy (CSTEP) and Centre for Environment, Energy and Climate Change at the Asian Development Research Institute (CEECC, ADRI).
