Here, the forecast released by the Air Quality Early Warning System on Saturday said that the AQI is likely to remain ‘severe’ till November 7. The air quality of Delhi-NCR has deteriorated in the last week due to falling temperatures and stagnant winds hampering the spread of pollution. This has further increased due to burning of paddy straw after harvesting in Punjab and Haryana.
Let us tell you that according to the air pollution control plan of the Centre, if AQI crosses 450 marks, then many other restrictions are imposed including ban on polluting trucks, commercial four-wheelers and all types of construction. Let us tell you that every year the pollution level in Delhi reaches dangerous levels in October-November.
