A recent study has been found that people residing in places with higher amounts of fine particulate matter pollution were 6 per cent more likely to suffer from glaucoma than those in the least polluted areas.
Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness and affects over 60 million people worldwide.
It most commonly results from a build-up of pressure from fluid in the eye, causing damage to the optic nerve that connects the eye to the brain. Glaucoma is a neurodegenerative disease.
The Ministry of Highways and Roads, has made it mandatory for all vehicles, private and commercial to immediately switch to electronic toll payment also known as FASTag across the country.
With this implementation, people driving their vehicles can cross highways seamlessly without having to stop at toll plazas to pay toll tax.
FASTag is basically a device which is affixed on a vehicles's windscreen. So, when one crosses a toll, a tag reader will scan the FASTag and deduct the toll charges electronically with no manual intervention.
Users will also receive service SMSes for transaction, low balance and other details.
