Air Quality In Delhi-NCR Slips To ‘Very Poor’, Pollution To Increase In Coming Days
December 4, 2019
The air quality in Delhi and the national capital region has slipped to ‘very poor’ category. Weather conditions, festivities and stubble burning will further deteriorate air quality in the next two days.
Delhi and neighbouring regions also saw a shoot-up in particle pollutants, ranging from very-poor to severe levels in some regions, which was over three to seven times the permissible limits.
The stubble burning increased in the neighbouring states of Punjab and Haryana, with environment activists asserting that farmers have intensified burning the crop residue protesting the lack of official support.
