    for-under

    Bangalore, along with Mumbai airport, have been presented with certificates in recognition of their achievements under the various levels.

    Can the word under be replaced by for?

    re: for-under

    Levels of what? I need more context before I could say.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Bangalore airport, which is the busiest in south India, has been given a certificate for carbon reduction. Mumbai airport on the other hand has been awarded the certificate for mapping carbon emissions. The "mapping" step of the Airport Carbon Accreditation, is the first and most basic step which requires measuring the carbon footprint of the Airport Carbon Accrediation requires carbon management and progress towards a reduced carbon footprint.

    This is the next paragraph.

    The whole thing is here.

    David, I think you didn't understand Barb's question. She asked, "The levels of what?" The answer to this question is not in the paragraph you gave in your reply. It's

    Bangalore, along with Mumbai airport, have been presented with certificates in recognition of their achievements under the various levels of Airport Carbon Accreditation by Airports Council International (ACI).

    Regardless of "levels of what", it should be "Bangalore, along with Mumbai Airport, has been presented ..."

    Also, it's not clear whether it's "Bangalore Airport, along with Mumbai Airport ..." or "The city of Bangalore, along with Mumbai Airport ..."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
