Pune lacks real-time pollution data from MPCB due to outdated systems

Experts in Pune, India are unable to access real-time air and water quality data due to outdated monitoring systems. The city has only one automatic air quality monitoring station, while the other seven are manual. The data from the automatic station is not updated frequently, and there is no updated data on water quality available. The Maharashtra Pollution Control Board is looking to install more automatic air quality monitoring stations in the area. Outdated monitoring systems can have far-reaching effects on human health, as pollution affects those with asthma, chest disorders, and dust allergies.
