India’s goal to hop on to the global climate change bandwagon and create a platform for new industries, modern transport networks and a clean economy is looking more distant as state-set targets fall behind schedule and the US and EU flex their financial muscle, drawing investments. India was among the first to push adoption of renewables and electric vehicles (EVs), in 2017 setting a target to end sales of internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles by 2030. But New Delhi soon reversed its position on this — and other clean energy policies. This flip-flopping has slowed the pace of pollution mitigation in India relative to key players China, the US and EU.
