404 Alert: Delhi’s Air Quality Still Severe, Citizens Urged to Take Precautions

According to statistics from the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), Delhi residents woke up to hazardous air on Friday once more as the national capital’s air quality remained in the “severe” category, with the AQI score reaching the 400 level at 9 a.m. today.

Anand Vihar got an average AQI of 447, RK Puram 465, the IGI airport 467, Dwarka 490, Noida Sector 125 352, and Greater Noida 314. The AQI in Gurugram, Haryana, was 444, according to CPCB statistics.

A score of 0–50 is regarded as acceptable, 51–100 as fair, 101–200 as moderate, 201–300 as bad, 301–400 as extremely poor, 401–450 as severe, and over 450 as severe plus.

Rainfall is to blame for last weekend’s comparatively excellent air quality. The strong firecrackers that went out on Diwali night and the return of stubble burning in the neighboring states caused the air pollution levels to soar in the days that followed.

A special task force on pollution is formed by the Delhi government

According to Environment Minister Gopal Rai, the Delhi government has established a Special Task Force (STF) to monitor pollution and enforce rules. In addition, the six-person STF will coordinate with other agencies and create reports to address low AQI.

The minister for Delhi stated that because of the unfavorable weather, the city’s present level of air pollution is anticipated to stay unchanged for the next three days.

“The current situation is such that for 2-3 days the AQI is going to remain in the’very poor’ category only because, as per the prediction for tomorrow, the wind speed will remain low till wind speed increases, and the AQI will stay in ‘the very poor’ category.
