Failure to check air pollution has made India the fourth worst country in the world in terms of curbing environmental pollution, according to Environmental Performance Index’s latest rankings. India ranked 177 out of 180 countries, in contrast to the rank of 141 two years ago. The EPI rankings were published on the sidelines of the annual World Economic Forum meet in Davos on Tuesday.
