Delhi pollution highlights: EPCA proposes ban on diesel vehicles as air quality deteriorates, Kejriwal to meet Khattar on Nov 15

With Delhi’s air quality index reaching 468 on Monday, the Supreme Court issued notices to the Centre as well as UP, Punjab, Haryana and Delhi governments on a petition on stubble burning.

Dense smog engulfed the city resulting in very less visibility in the morning at Raisina in New Delhi, on Sunday.

New Delhi’s air quality deteriorated on Monday morning, with poor visibility leading to cancellation of eight trains. A thick cloud of toxic smog 10 times the recommended limit enveloped the national capital, as government officials struggled to tackle a public health crisis that is well into its second week.

Delhi’s air quality index (AQI) on Monday was 468. The national capital saw the season’s worst air quality at 486 on November 9. The air quality improved on Friday and Saturday but deteriorated on Sunday.

For the last six days, the air quality has remained in the “severe” zone across the National Capital Region, prompting the Indian Medical Association to declare a health emergency.
