Delhi’s air quality takes a hit post Diwali, plunges to ‘very poor’ category
Air quality in Delhi took a hit after the Diwali night due to firecracker emissions and stubble burning. Pollution levels have been oscillating between lower end and higher end of ‘very poor’ category. Higher value of AQI indicates greater level of air pollution and health concern. Delhiites have complained of a spike in respiratory problems and allergies. Stubble burning in Punjab and Haryana makes the situation worse in Delhi. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal led-AAP government has announced implementation of Odd-Even scheme from November 4 to November 15.
