Now, clothes that can monitor body movements 19.4.2018 General News
Scientists have developed hi-tech clothes using strain sensing textile fibres that can keep track of the wearer's movements.

NCAP to play crucial role to address air pollution: Minister 19.4.2018 General News
The National Clean Air Programme (NCAP), which proposes multiple strategies to combat air pollution, is estimated to cost Rs 637 crore, the environment ministry today said, with its Minister of State Mahesh Sharma asserting that the plan is expected to play a "crucial" role in addressing the menace. The ministry, which recently released the draft of the NCAP and invited comments from various stakeholders by May 17, was also criticised by Greenpeace India that said the absence of pollution reduction targets of 35 per cent in three years and 50 per cent in five years in the plan was a cause of "grave concern". Union Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan had said in February that the ministry hopes to bring down air pollution in around 100 non-attainment cities by 50 per cent in the next five years under the NCAP. The non-attainment cities are areas which have air quality below the national ambient air quality standard. Inaugurating a two-day stakeholder consultation on the NCAP here today,
