India as far as financial progress has been concerned, has been growing very rapidly and went on to become the 5th largest economy of the world leaving behind the United Kingdom. It’s a subject to be jocular about but we should also focus on the dark side of it, that is the pollution caused by this Industrialization. The automobile sector in our country has been burgeoning at a very tremendous rate but source at which these vehicles are running is still majorly based on the same archaic ways of using fossil fuels specially the crude oil thus causing a pollution not only by in form of emissions released by these vehicles but also while extracting these oils from their sources. This paper aims to analyse various options of alternative fuels that can be used instead of the obsolete crude and what steps the government of India has taken regarding the same. At an international level, the United Nations Sustainable Development goals has played a very crucial role to make the international community conscious about the alarming need to switch to using and exploring the other options not just to comply with the sustainable development goals but also to protect and save the environment from the crisis in which it is now. Air Pollution is one of the most challenging environmental problems faced by the countries in the 21st century specially in India where lacs of people die from it and hence it is in humanity’s best interests to look into, curtail and curb this problem as soon as possible.
