New Delhi: According to the data released by the Foreign Meteorological Department, Delhi has become the most polluting city in the world.
Air pollution in Delhi-NCR has become very serious due to increasing incidents of stubble burning in Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh.
According to the latest data released by the Central Pollution Control Board, the situation has worsened in the cities of NCR along with Delhi due to continuous increase in air pollution. According to the latest CPCB data, the air quality level of Delhi’s ITO stood at 469 on Tuesday.
At the same time, it reached 489 in Narela of Delhi and 497 in Gurugram adjacent to Delhi. Noida city adjacent to Delhi is also in bad shape. The air quality level has reached 480.
Meanwhile, on Monday, the National Green Tribunal has banned the bursting and selling of firecrackers in Delhi-NCR till 30th November. At the same time, pollution reached dangerous levels in Delhi-NCR on Monday, making it difficult to breathe, most people have also complained of eye irritation.
At the same time, Delhi’s wind broke a one-year record on Monday amid seasonal fluctuations. Air index 477 was recorded. It is not only this season but the highest since November 3rd last year. Then the air index was 494 records. This is the first time in this season that the air index of all the cities of Delhi-NCR remained in the critical (emergency) category for the fifth consecutive day.
The severity of the situation can also be understood from this that the newly constituted commission has appealed to keep an eye on the air quality of Delhi-NCR, unless it is very necessary, do not leave the house.
