Pollution,Ghaziabad city,air quality index

Twenty-eight areas in Delhi recorded "poor" air quality, six recorded "very poor" air quality, while two areas recorded "moderate" air quality, according to the CPCB data.

It also said that the combination of several rapidly changing weather parameters is playing a key role in controlling air pollution at this time.

The highest levels of PM10 and PM2.5 are expected between 11pm to 3am on the night of November 7-8.

The System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research (SAFAR), weather forecasting body under Ministry of Earth Science, said the moisture in the air on Wednesday was normal, thus reducing the air holding capacity.

"If we are to implement long lasting solutions to air pollution - we need to penalise polluters and demand that policy makers implement commitments like the 10,000 electric buses in Delhi and the solarisation of all public buildings so that we address sources of pollution and move towards sustainable growth", said Reecha Upadhyay, member of Help Delhi Breathe.

Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR) on Monday experienced the first smog of the season with air pollutants going up many folds higher than the permissible limits and the air quality falling under the "severe-plus" or "emergency" category.

On October 31, the division bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Justice Arjan Kumar Sikri, fixed the time hours from 8 pm and 10 pm on Diwali for burning crackers and also issued guidelines on the majority of the aspect of the festival.

While in southeast Delhi, three cases were registered and one person was arrested.

Since of one the main problems in Delhi is its burgeoning traffic, it has also been advised that the Delhi traffic police launch a special drive for lane driving. A person was arrested in this connection, he added. The growing concern for air quality in the National Capital Region (NCR) has pushed the government to organise a Clean Air Week from 1 November to 5 November. Kota had the most polluted air in the state with highest level of AQI.

In Geneva today, the United Kingdom government has further committed to take action in bringing down particulate matter in the country, the most harmful air pollutant, promising to halve the number of British people living with concentrations of particulate matter above the World Health Organization guideline of 10 μg/m3 by 2025.

In a rather frightening warning over the smog situation in Delhi, reports quoted doctors as saying that the national capital air was like a "death sentence".
