Delhi’s Air Quality Persists in the ‘Very Poor’ Category

Date:

New Delhi: Delhi woke up to another morning of ‘very poor” air quality as the city’s Air Quality Index (AQI) stood at 310, as per SAFAR-India’s data at 8:30 am on Monday.

As per the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) data recorded at 7:00 am on Monday, the air quality index at Anand Vihar was recorded at 361; it was 368 at Alipur; Ashok Vihar at 342; ITO, Delhi at 318; and at RK Puram, it was recorded at 344, all falling into the ‘very poor’ category.

A day after restrictions under the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) – 4 were lifted in Delhi following improvement in the air quality, Environment Minister Gopal Rai on Sunday urged people to be careful and continue to follow the rules as stages 1, 2, and 3 of GRAP are still in place to tackle air pollution in the national capital.

Gopal Rai said, “Though there has been a constant improvement in air quality, people still need to be aware in order to maintain this improvement.”

Earlier on Saturday, the Delhi government announced the reopening of schools from Monday (November 20), following an improvement in air quality from the ‘severe’ to ‘very poor’ category. The Directorate of Education has issued a notice, cautioning the postponement of outdoor activities and assemblies for an additional week.

This development comes in the wake of the Commission for Air Quality Management lifting anti-pollution measures under Stage IV of the Graded Response Action Plan.

The Commission for Air Quality Management (CAQM) revoked Stage IV of the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) in Delhi and adjoining areas on Saturday after the air quality improved from ‘severe’ to’very poor’ category.
