Vijay Shekhar Sharma, founder of Paytm, posted a series of tweets where he compared the air in Delhi to that of Beijing five years ago.

 

Though Sharma now lives in Bengaluru because of his asthmatic son, his concern for the city remains high.

 

Various media outlets reported that the Paytm founder has pledged Rs.10 crore of his personal money for start-ups working to protect the environment.
