The AQI was a mild improvement from Monday’s 434 – with both recordings being the highest in two months, since air pollution first reached crisis levels due to smoke from farm fires and calm winds that are typical of pre-winter months.

Delhi’s air quality index (AQI) remained in the ‘severe’ category for a second consecutive day on Tuesday, despite some improvement, with a reading of 407 as per the Central Pollution Control Board’s (CPCB) bulletin at 4 pm.
