People’s Green Award – Simple Voting

PNLIT is delighted to tell you that it has been shortlisted for the People’s Green Award instituted as part of the TCS World 10K. Public voting and Jury assessment will together decide the final three winners.  

PNLIT is a local people’s initiative to tackle the problem of dying lakes and water shortage through public participation. We were instrumental in getting the Puttenahalli Lake restored and are the first citizens’ group in Bangalore to officially maintain a lake. 

We work within a very tight budget from donations made mostly by individual well wishers. 
The People’s Green Award will help us get some financial support and also encourage others to take up lake restoration in their neighbourhood. Together we can save more lakes, thus prevent garbage/sewage dumping and avert the impending water crisis and water pollution in our city.  

We appeal to you to please vote for us. VOTING IS SIMPLE. No form to be filled, no Captcha to be deciphered! JUST 3 STEPS

Why the national programme for clean air failed a gasping Mumbai

Mumbai has seen an alarming decline in air quality. A look at the limited impact of the National Clean Air Programme on mitigating pollution.

October 2023 was a shocker for Mumbai. The coastal city has historically recorded lower AQI levels as compared to Delhi, which is notorious for its poor air quality. But the tables turned in October 2023, with AQI in Mumbai reaching dangerously high levels of up to 300, surpassing Delhi for several days.
