Growth rate of Motor Vehicles in India - Impact of Demographic and Economic Development
While motorization rate in India is lower than many developing countries-both in absolute term and relative to size of population, but over the last decade, India is experiencing one of the highest motorization growth rates in the world. This paper examines the influence of population growth, increase in urbanizations and economic development on rapid growth of motor vehicles in India by using secondary data which are correlated by line graph method. Economic development is the major factor affecting the growth rate of motor vehicles. Motor vehicle growths have been largely concentrated in major cities which deteriorate the environmental condition of Urban India. This leads to concern among environmentalists over the further impact on Indian and global environment and considers their implication for future transportation growth in the country.
