A team of researchers from Manav Rachna Innovation and Incubation Centre (MRIIC) comprising Dr. B S Gill, Amit Kumar and Prachie Sharma have devised the revolutionary product “Pariyayantra” -an ‘Air Pollution Mitigation’ product that cleans atmospheric air through filters fitted on vehicles. Pariyayantra does not require any power to operate and is equivalent to the filtration provided by 6 room air filters. These are air filter units that can be mounted on the roof of any vehicle — buses, cars, auto-rickshaws and even two-wheelers.
Pariyayantra was formally flagged off by Dr. Harsh Vardhan, Hon’ble Minister for Science & Technology, Environment, Forest and Climate Change and Earth Sciences from the Paryavaran Bhawan, New Delhi in 2018.
