On Sunday morning, the national capital’s Air Quality Index (AQI) was listed in the “poor” category.
According to the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), Delhi’s air quality is still classified as “Poor.”
The CPCB data shows that on Sunday morning at 7:00 am, the AQI in Anand Vihar was measured at 266 while it was reported at 241 at RK Puram. Comparably, it was recorded at 227 in the ITO region and 233 in the Punjabi Bagh area.
Vehicles entering the national capital are being checked by officials amid the pollution-related GRAP 4 regulations.
There was a slight improvement in Delhi’s air quality on Saturday following the rainfall on Friday. The air quality, which was previously categorized as ‘Very Poor’ by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), improved to the ‘Poor’ category.
However, despite rains offering a slight respite, Delhi’s air quality continued to be a matter of concern for residents.
A local resident and morning walker at Kartavya Path noted, “After the rains, the pollution has slightly decreased but the bad air quality condition persists. We are still facing some problems in breathing.”
Gopal Rai, the minister of the environment in Delhi, declared on Friday that the odd-even car-rationing scheme would not be implemented in the city as planned by the state government.
After 4 am, there was a decrease in PM 2.5 and PM10 pollution levels in the national capital and its environs.
