Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Environment officials had announced that a complete ban on construction and excavation work across the national capital region had taken place and the government said that officials who fail to stop such activities despite receiving tip-offs will face criminal prosecution.

These announcements are just a few in a series of measures meant to combat air pollution, which is expected to enter unhealthy levels from November 1st and possibly turn hazardous over the remaining month.

All industries that were running on coal and biomass will have to be shut down between November 4th and 10th, and governments have been asked to increase patrolling, including night patrolling, in industrial areas and pollution ‘hot spots’.
