While the country was celebrating Diwali and having fun and was not at all bothering about the air quality being deteriorated by the crackers burnt by them. The air quality in Delhi and Noida deteriorated to the “very poor” level after Diwali celebration.
We always talk of burning eco-friendly and green crackers but when it comes to practical then people forget what they were talking about, for some Diwali is a festival of lights but some still consider it as festival of crackers.
The overall air quality index stood at 306 and 356 in Delhi and Noida.
Extremely poor pollution levels were predicted in Delhi due to firecracker emissions, unfavourable weather and a significant spike in stubble burning in neighbouring states.
In Gurugram, the air quality index fell to 279 (poor) after Diwali celebrations.
On Saturday, the System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research (SAFAR) had predicted that the air quality will get even worse in coming days and the AQI was expected to be around 324 due to Diwali.
Stubble burning in Punjab and Haryana makes the situation in Delhi worse. According to Punjab Remote Sensing Centre (PRSC), straw burning has increased this year.
To curb air pollution, the Arvind Kejriwal-led government in Delhi has announced the implementation of the Odd-Even scheme from November 4 to 15.
