Vehicle density in Chandigarh the highest in India
With the highest vehicle density in the country, Chandigarh’s air quality has depleted in past few years. As per the report, an average family in Chandigarh owns more than two cars. Emissions from such a huge number of vehicles have worsened the air quality in the UT. Though the forest cover has increased in Chandigarh but it is not at par with the increasing number of vehicles in the city.
