Delhi’s air quality drops to ‘very poor’ category for first time this season. According to the agency’s air quality index or AQI, any reading above 100 on a scale of 500 is progressively unsafe for health.
SAFAR said the air quality in Delhi would deteriorate further from Thursday onwards, with a large contribution coming from stubble burning.
The Air Quality Index of Delhi continues to remain in the ‘severe’ category, informed the Centre-run System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research on Saturday.
What people are saying?
Amit Malviya Delhi’s air quality has been in severely poor category for the last two days, even before the crackers came out. So, while the motivated NGOs will file random PILs, the Courts have to be judicious, look at facts and not clamp down Diwali revelry as it isn’t a contributing factor.
Mr Sinha Though air quality of Delhi is bad since past few weeks still if we believe their claim that Diwali caused this, then my only question to them is what happened in Beijing? Hindus celebrated Diwali there as well?
