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.

The System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR), under the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, assessed the air quality in the two cities, as well as Pune, between February 27 and March 13, 2017.

Mumbai recorded 13% “satisfactory” days, Delhi 40% and Pune 47%. In Mumbai, 20% of the days had “very poor” air quality while Delhi had none.
