FACTS & FIGURES - Saksham Pedal Delhi

1,000 new personal vehicles are added each day to the Delhi roads, many of which run on diesel

Breathing Delhi's air for a day is equal to smoking more than 20 cigarettes

Cycling 10 km each way to work would save 1500 kg of greenhouse gas emissions each year

Bicycles are up to 50 times faster than cars during rush hour

PM2.5, which is considered the most dangerous particle, often reaches more than 20 times the permissible limit in Delhi's air

In winter, vehicles contribute 25 per cent to PM2.5 concentration in air, with diesel vehicles contributing a large share to both PM10 and    PM2.5 levels

Moreover, around 23 per cent of the cars registered in Delhi are diesel. Diesel cars emit 7.5 times more particulate matter than the       petrol versions and produce more toxic nitrogen dioxide

Petrol demand rose 12.2% in 2016 on top of strong growth in 2015, with diesel demand rising 5.6%, its fastest in four years, driven by a     surge in domestic automobile sales

Traffic congestion on Delhi roads costs around $10 billion or about ₹ 60,000 crore annually

World bank Study: Total damage because of environmental degradation amounts to Rs. 3.75 trillion, which is equivalent to around 5.7     per cent of the India's GD

A report earlier this year from the Oil Ministry said that fuel consumption in 2017 would be the highest level in the last 16 years

The vehicles on the road (if you add three-wheelers and commercial vehicles) are now comparable to the total number of households     in India (around 250 million)
