In response to the growing universal environmental harms many calls for changes in how individuals should deal with the environmental issues.

The 630 respondents from three major cities in Karnataka completed a questionnaire and SEM analysis revealed an excellent fit for the proposed TPB model; that attitude, subjective norm and perceived behavioral control together caused 72. 6 per cent of variance in the individual’s intention to engage in PEB, which in turn, cause 46.8 per cent of variance in actual pro-environmental behavior.
