Delhi's air ‘severe’, but Grap III curbs unlikely for now

The Capital on Sunday recorded an AQI of 407 (severe) at 4pm as per Central Pollution Control Board’s (CPCB) bulletin — the highest in 12 days, and a sharp departure from the recording of 294 (in the “poor” category) on Saturday.

NCR had Stage-III restrictions in place between January 6 and 15, with CAQM imposing it on January 6, when the AQI touched 400 briefly. The measures, however, were lifted on January 15, as Delhi’s AQI dropped below 300.
