Relief from Delhi pollution for the next three days

Sri Lankan players had to wore face masks as the air quality plunge.

A bench headed by NGT chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar took exception over the failure of the AAP government in filing the report despite its specific order. Engineer I read a report that stated that the pollution level in Delhi is 15 times more than the World Health Organization limit which makes the capital inhabitable to all, not just cricketers.

Even as the media coverage continues to focus largely on Delhi, data from research studies, national monitoring and satellite retrievals show unequivocally that the winter smog impacts large parts of north India with people across state lines breathing a stew of toxic air.

The Air Quality Index (AQI), as recorded by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), also reflected the rise in the levels of these ultrafine air-borne particulates, which manage to lodge deep in the lungs and even enter the bloodstream. As per the reports, in their action plan, Delhi Government told NGT that Odd-even will be implemented without exemptions if the pollution level touches the sever category. The corresponding prescribed standards are 60 and 100.

The rest was in the "very poor" zone, which comes with the warning that people may develop respiratory illness on prolonged exposure. However, it is menacingly close to the "severe" category.

At 7 p.m., the volume of major pollutant PM2.5 or particles with diameter less than 2.5 micrometers in Delhi was 254 units and in Delhi-NCR it was 261 units - 10 times the safe limit.

An AQI between 0-50 is considered Good, 51-100 Satisfactory, 101-200 Moderate, 201-300 Poor, 301-400 Very Poor, and 401-500 Severe. The IMD has forecast possibility of light rains on December 5 and 6. The humidity levels oscillated between 39 and 94 per cent. The maximum and minimum temperature would be around 24 and 9 degrees Celsius respectively, according to the weather department.
