                                              For many of the developing countries with lesser emission standards, it is time to strengthen up the norms and increase the emission standard by using comprehensive superior technology for vehicle production. In this context, it is important to illegalize the companies that sell vehicles which runs on polluting fuels such as diesel. Beijing is successful doing so. Discouraging Vehicle use and bringing out policies like Odd-Even policy by Delhi that limits the number of vehicles on road can potentially prove useful. One could limit car parking spaces that will not only bring down traffic but also promote cab sharing and car pooling. It is important to use the smartness of the present generation to improvise on technology that uses minimal fuel to become the least pollutant. This is seen in Sri Lanka where only Hybrid vehicles (which runs on battery and fuel) are allowed to transverse. Apart from this, reducing domestic fuel consumption and appropriate waste management that does not include burning can prove useful. Lastly the challenge is to overcome the depowered pollution control board and corrupted politicians who gulp up the finance that has been allocated to better the environment. Bringing out a sustainable strategy is the need of the hour and all Nations must strive for it. If Mexico, for being called the most polluted in 1992, can bring up a cleaner air to breathe in a decade, nothing seems impossible for the other nations as well!
