BEIJING: The increase in people dying in India from air pollution will outpace the rate of such deaths in China, as India drags its heels over environmental rules while opening more coal mines, the head of a US research group said on Thursday.
"India's situation is getting worse at a much faster speed than China," Dan Greenbaum, president of Boston-based Health Effects Institute (HEI), told Reuters in Beijing.
"It is definitely the case because India has not taken as much action on air pollution."
HEI and a group of Chinese and Indian universities recently said that over half of world's air pollution-related deaths were in China and India. In China, coal-fired plants have been the worst source of pollution. But India has lagged behind in implementing stringent environment policies for coal emission.
Most Indians have never been abroad so they can''t compare,India is the most polluted country in the world hands down.
India will over take China in every aspect that is govt of India target. Yes no-doubt our pollution is going at greater speed and needs to control or else face the real music in longer run or next generation.
India is the most unhygienic country of the world.Peoples are drinking water in rivers where also dead bodies are floating.
and majority of the world are eating dead bodies of animals, that is the most hygienic in your eyes i guess
Well! India is ahead of China in something besides IT exports.
Having Visited China and Russia, they look like a paradise compared to India. Although compared to the Northern Cities, we in the south are cleaner physically, environmentally and "Mentally".
The Game Changer
All this, and we are still a growing economy while China is at the top...
In every aspects India is the dirtiest country.. People''s attitude is too self centred and too many unhygienic poors.
too much of pollution in Delhi

Too many people spoil the land and country. India''s land size is not that big compared to Brazil, USA, China and Russia. India''s population is estimated to rise to 2 billion by 2100.
At least in one field we are ahead of China!
PLANT MORE TREES INSTEAD OF MAKING BUILDINGS !!!!!!!!
