After Delhi, even in Mumbai, life-threatening pollution, how many years will the life of Mumbaikars be reduced? New Survey Revealed | Air pollution is decreasing life expectancy of 40 percent Indians Delhi and Mumbai at danger

More than 48 crore people in Central, East and North India are living in severe air pollution, which is extremely detrimental to their health. The report specifically mentions the situation in Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh where the average person is losing 2.5 to 2.9 years of life. This effect is seen after prolonged exposure to air pollution.

Air pollution

New Delhi: Air pollution in India is at such a critical level that air pollution is reducing the average life expectancy of Indians by 9.7 years, including major cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata. According to a survey, 40 per cent of the country’s population – especially in northern India – would lose more than nine years of life if pollution levels remained unchanged. These figures are based on the air quality index reported in 2019. In the last two years, India’s air quality has deteriorated rather than improved. These figures are based on findings from the Air Quality Life Index (AQLI) released by the Energy Policy Institute of the University of Chicago (EPIC).

According to the survey, more than 48 crore people in Central, East and North India are living in severe air pollution, which is extremely detrimental to their health. The report specifically mentions the situation in Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh where the average person is losing 2.5 to 2.9 years of life. This effect is seen after prolonged exposure to air pollution.

The situation in North India is so bad now that the government has had to close schools and force people to work from home. The apex court, seeing the level of air pollution in Delhi and the NCR, also said that the situation was similar to a lockdown. Although many steps have been taken to control air pollution in North India, it has not been successful. And the situation is getting worse every year.

What are WHO’s observations?

High levels of air pollution in India have been increasing geographically over time. Compared to a few decades ago, air or water pollution in India is no longer confined to certain parts of the country. According to World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines, the life expectancy of an average person would be reduced by at least 2.2 years if the harmful particles in air pollution were not reduced. The lives of people living in the most polluted areas of the world have been found to decrease by at least 5 years. According to the WHO, a total of 58 percent of the lives have been lost in South Asia. This percentage is higher in this area with high pollution and high population.
