We have already achieved the target of 10 percent blending of ethanol in petrol five months back. Whereas the target to achieve it was November 2022. This is a big achievement as the mix was barely 1.5 percent in 2013-14 and five percent in 2019-20. Its direct effect is not only about saving foreign exchange, but due to this, about 27 lakh tonnes of carbon emissions have been reduced in the environment. The forest area is also increasing. Wildlife is also increasing. There has been a significant increase in the number of tigers and lions. The PM said that life is to live a lifestyle that is in harmony with our planet and does not harm it. Those living such a lifestyle are called “pro-planet people”.
