“They can share the steps they are taking at the local level to fight pollution. For instance, if they are using public transportation, they can share pictures and if they are forming nukkad (street) teams to fight pollution, they can tell us about their programme,” Rai said.

He added, “They will be awarded points on the basis of their initiatives… 100 people will be shortlisted and honoured. The chatbot has been made in partnership with UNICEF.”

The minister also announced the revamp of a one-stop website – www.delhifightspollution.in – which will let people know about the pollution levels in the national capital, and the steps they can take to control various types of pollution.
