Abstract: In india with increasing in human population the number of motor vehicles are also increasing. Diesel motor vehicles are a significant source of air pollution. They not only damage the environment but are also responsible for various concerns related to health. Black carbon released from diesel motor vehicles is a major air pollutant which absorbs sunlight due to the dark color and heats the atmosphere. It deposits on the snowy surfaces and darken it and accelerate the process of melting of snow and thus it plays an important role in climate change. In a developing country like India, the pollution from diesel vehicles is contributing the problems associated with climate change which is influencing India's water resources, agriculture and damaging the forests which have a direct impact on the economy. There is lack of research work in India as compared to international levels on black carbon (soot particle) emitted from diesel driven motor vehicles. In the present paper information related to harmful black carbon and its impacts on environment as well as on human being has been summarized.
