This announcement of the central government is a major step towards taking the country forward in the field of clean energy. The government believes that hydrogen energy will be very effective in reducing pollution as a clean and green energy.

Hydrogen-driven bus review

Focus on education after health in the budget
Prime Minister Modi said that for building a self-reliant India, confidence in the youth of the country is equally important.

The new National Education Policy is designed with this thinking in mind.
