The few Indian cities where you can avoid living with deadly air pollution

India’s air pollution problem keeps getting worse.

Greenpeace’s second annual report (pdf) on the state of air quality in Indian cities, analyzed data from 280 cities across the country, compared to 168 cities analyzed in 2017.

And the data are grim.

Air quality is measured based on the number of small particles every cubic meter of air, specifically those smaller than 2.5 micrograms (PM2.5) or 10 micrograms (PM10). These particles are capable of entering the human blood stream through lungs and increase risk heart attacks, strokes, and lung cancer.

No Indian city passes the World Health Organization’s guideline value for PM10 pollution of less than 20 micrograms per cubic meter. And only 52 out of 280 cities pass Indian government’s own standards of air pollution that say PM10 shouldn’t exceed 60 micrograms per cubic meter.

Here is the list of those 52 cities in India, where you could live without deadly air pollution:

Nalgonda Telangana
Parwanoo Himachal Pradesh
Tirupati Andhra Pradesh
Shillong Meghalaya
Rayagada Odisha
Nagda Madhya Pradesh
