Delhi turning into gas chamber as air quality drops to 'severe' | In pics

Published on Oct 29, 2022 12:02 AM IST
  • In the midst of measures like a ban on firecrackers during Diwali and other festivals, Delhi's air quality worsened on Friday. Some areas reported a ‘severe’ category of air quality. A similar AQI is predicted to continue until the end of the month, largely maintaining in the "very poor" category. According to the sub-committee of the Commission for Air Quality Management (CAQM), if the situation remains 'severe' (Graded Response Action Plan Stage III), authorities will enforce a ban on construction and demolition activities in the NCR, except for essential projects (such as railways, metros, airports, ISBTs and national security/defence-related projects of national importance).
