An announcement of a study was made by the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC), that’s in a partnership with a leading think-tank Centre for Science and Environment (CSE).

The purpose of this study is to identify the factors along with various sources of pollution and find out their sources in select hotpots in Delhi. Through a recent meeting, the CSE said that the three-month-long study with equipment that’s provided by the Japanese instrumentation company Horiba can do real-time monitoring of pollution levels at 10-12 specific locations in the national capital.

The study that uses Beta-ray attenuation and X-ray fluorescence technologies will record baseline data at the selected locations of Delhi-NCR and will later help in measuring the sudden jump in the pollution level.
