The beginning of 2016 is expected to bring relief from air pollution for Delhi residents.
The Met office predicted the air quality to be between “moderate to very poor” in the next few days — a small improvement.
The System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR) has forecast that suspended particulate matter PM10 would touch a “new low” — which is a good sign — of the season in the next three days and settle in the moderate category.
The PM2.5 level, the smaller particles that had been the lead pollutant in Delhi for the last two months, would also dip, but continue to remain in the “very poor” category.
