For the National Clean Air Mission also known as NCAP, the National Knowledge Network centered in Kanpur identify knowledge partners and guide institutions for the abatement of air pollution in over 100 non-attainment cities. These knowledge partner institutes are known as Institute of Repute (IOR) who primarily provide technical and scientific support for clean air project in these cities.

Roles and Responsibilities of IOR

  1. IoRs to get into MOUs with SPCBs/ULAs
  2. To extend all necessary knowledge based support to the SPCBs and ULAs, in agreement with the guidance provided in CPCB/NKN.
  3. May undertake Air quality monitoring work, data analysis, data utilization, compilation, adherence to interpretation protocols and report preparation.
  4. Calibration of CAAQMS, compliance verification work of emission norms as a third party (TPA) to provide independent input to SPCBs/and policy makers.
