Delhi air cleaner than Mumbai: Meteorology dept

Date:

NEW DELHI: The air quality of the National capital Delhi,  is cleaner than that of Mumbai, for over two weeks. Mumbai is expected to have considerably cleaner air than most north Indian cities.

The reason, surprisingly, may not be a sudden increase in Mumbai’s emissions but a sharp improvement in Delhi’s air quality, scientists said.
