The strategy will be driven by biofuels as important component in the Indian energy basket.

India is committed to reduce carbon emissions as a by 33 to 35% by 2030 as a signatory of the Paris Agreement or Paris Accords, Gadkari stated.

Steps are being taken to decarbonise the transport sector by cutting down on harmful Green House Gas (GHG) emissions.
