Abstract: Air quality emergency in urban areas is for the most part because of vehicular emanations. Transportation frameworks are expanding all over the place and the enhancements in innovation are deficient to balance development. Expanding urbanization, Industrialization and mechanization in India is answerable for more elevated levels of contamination. Engine vehicle discharges as of now include a significant wellspring of air contamination in Indian urban areas. They are evaluated to be liable for 60 to 70 % of the air contamination in the greater part of the urban communities. Engine vehicle emanations influences the wellbeing of all pay gatherings yet it’s effect on the poor is essentially high because of their working and living in open places.In a large portion of the Indian urban areas, the contamination loads are far above satisfactory levels and Delhi has gained the questionable qualification of being the second most dirtied city on the planet and Chennai city is gradually approaching the second position alongside Delhi, in Indian setting, according to the report. Henceforth a reality discovering overview was led to survey the contamination worry in different areas of the Chennai city covering Residential, Industrial and Commercial territory. A portion of the key pollutants(PM 2.5 and PM10) are in abundance of allowed levels and the issues have arrived at undermining dimensions. To decrease the vehicular emanations, it is important to structure and actualize idiot proof procedures and to execute contamination control gauges adequately to control discharges.
