Under which it has committed to reduce the emissions intensity of its GDP by 33 to 35 per cent by 2030 from 2005 level create an additional carbon sink of 2.5 to 3 billion tonnes of CO2 equivalent through additional forest and tree cover by 2030 and increase India’s share of non-fossil fuels in total installed capacity to about 40 % by 2030.
