Air pollution rises in Delhi-NCR as stubble burning goes on

Air quality in Delhi-NCR worsened yet again on Thursday, with at least seven out of 21 monitored regions facing “severe” or “severe-plus” levels of pollution as the wind speed dropped but kept blowing from the stubble burning states.

Across Delhi-NCR, Anand Vihar in east Delhi, Vasundhara in Ghaziabad and Sector 125 in Noida reeled under “severe-plus” or “emergency” situation, while the air quality was “severe” at Mathura Road in south Delhi, Shadipur in west Delhi, R.K. Puram in south-west Delhi and Delhi Technical University (DTU) in north Delhi.

The average value of major pollutant PM2.5-or particles in the air with diameter less than 2.5 micrometers-was 227 units across Delhi-NCR at 7 p.m, which is nine times higher than the safe limit.
