'India needs to grow at 10% to meet population demands' 

The Indian Express , May 15, 2018

India needs to grow at about 10 per cent annually for the next three decades to be able to meet the ever-rising demands of its growing population, NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant said on Monday.

This order of growth however will not be achieved if the 'business-as-usual' approach to the use of scarce resources continues, he cautioned.

He said that for reducing dependence on fossil fuels in transportation, a NITI Aayog analysis suggests that the way forward is the use of bio-fuels.

"We are giving a big push to electric vehicles in a bid to conserve exhaustible natural resources and bring about resource efficiency," Kant said at FICCI's Circular Economy Symposium-2018 here. He also underlined the need to embed the principles of circular economy in India's school education system.
