New Delhi: Air pollution in Delhi has once again increased to ‘very poor’ condition. According to SAFAR, the Air Quality Index in the national capital rose to 368 on Friday. PM 10 was recorded at the level of 376 and PM 2.5 at the level of 224.

The AQI in Gurugram and Noida was recorded at 350 and 463 respectively. Which shows a very bad condition of air pollution.

According to SAFAR, since the winds will blow slowly for the next three days, the chances of removal of pollution-causing substances from the atmosphere are less. In such a situation, the situation may get worse in the next three days. There will be a slight increase in the wind speed from November 29, due to which the situation of air pollution can improve.

Explain that in view of air pollution, the Supreme Court has again banned construction activities in Delhi and National Capital Region (NCR). The court directed the states to pay maintenance from the amount collected as labor cess to the workers during the period of suspension of construction activities.

Apart from this, the opening of schools and colleges was also banned in view of air pollution. Along with this, except for the trucks engaged in essential services, the entry of trucks in Delhi has also been banned till December 3.
