New Delhi: Even though there is a slight relief from the air pollution in North India today or Friday in the capital Delhi, air pollution may increase in the coming days. Since last days, people are constantly facing harassment due to pollution. As soon as they get out of the house, people have burning sensation in the eyes and have difficulty in breathing. Air quality is also deteriorating each day due to increasing air pollution. Even though Delhi-NCR residents, who have been facing severe levels of pollution for six consecutive days, got relief on Wednesday, the Air Quality Index (AQI) remains in the dangerous category.
Not only this, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan are also constantly increasing pollution levels. This is the reason why the NGT prohibited the burning of firecrackers on festivals across the country, although in this decree such states were allowed to burn green crackers for 2 hours where the air quality is right. Let us see what is the latest situation of air pollution in the states of North India.
Smog relief in Delhi-NCR
People of Delhi-NCR were facing severe air pollution for the last several days, in such a situation, people got some relief from pollution on Wednesday. Delhi’s Air Quality Index (AQI) was down 132 points and dropped from 476 to 344. PM2.5 levels also fell to 154 and PM10 levels were recorded at 285 micrograms per cubic meter. There was also a significant decrease in the index in NCR cities. According to experts, this level has dropped due to increasing wind speed. But it is feared that AQI will start increasing again on Friday with the wind speed decreasing and changing direction.
Fog prevails in Moradabad in UP
There is no reduction in air pollution in Moradabad in UP also. Today, on Thursday morning, there was a mist in Moradabad, due to which people are finding it difficult to breathe on exit. Please tell that the NGT has also banned burning of firecrackers here due to increasing pollution.
The latest state of pollution in Rajasthan
The pollution level in Rajasthan has been increasing continuously since two days. The pollution level in the capital Jaipur has increased up to three times. The national air quality index level in Jaipur remains at around 300. The air quality index of the capital has reached 353. Alwar’s industrial town of Bhiwadi in the National Capital Region has a pollution level of over 450, while Jaipur’s Shahpura has more than 330 pollution levels. Keeping air pollution levels so high is harmful to health.
