Farm fires back in Punjab, 214 cases reported in fortnight

With paddy harvesting underway in Punjab, farm fires have started with 81 cases reported on Saturday, mostly in the Majha region. In an effort to reduce stubble burning, the Punjab government has promised to decrease it by 50% compared to last year. The state recorded 49,000 farm fires in 2022, down from 71,000 in 2021. Punjab plans to make six districts farm fire-free and has measures in place to manage paddy straw. Stubble burning contributes to severe air pollution in North Indian states and Delhi. Farmers argue they have no choice but to burn stubble due to lack of affordable alternatives.
