After ten days the air of the capital became suffocating again

Due to the activity of Western Disturbance, there was good rain in Delhi and surrounding areas on January 31. People living in polluted air for about a hundred days had got relief to a great extent from pollution, but now it has started increasing again. Delhi’s AQI stood at 313 points on Sunday.
Most polluted area and its factors
In the month of November, AQI in 13 hotspot areas of the capital remained in the severe and very poor category. The level of pollution here remains high due to broken roads, dust rising from construction sites, traffic jams, improper operation of the RMC plant etc.
Report: Despite all efforts, five hotspots remained in serious category
At the same time, despite all the efforts, the level of pollution in the capital is not showing any signs of reducing. In the month of November, the average AQI reached above 400 at five hotspots which were the most polluted. This means that people breathed severe air quality throughout the month.
Delhi Pollution Control Committee has prepared a detailed report on the main trends of pollution. In this, the level of pollution has been specifically investigated in the month of November. The 13 most polluted areas (hotspots) were identified about five years ago. Various measures are taken here every year. Teams are deployed in this, which prevent the sources of pollution. Steps like mobile anti-smog guns, stopping open burning of garbage, taking anti-dust measures at construction sites are taken. Despite this, there was no significant reduction in the level of pollution.
