Topic Description:

Delhi is once again grappling crisis of air pollution… The spike in the pollution has once again dipped capital's air quality. Though it showed marginal improvement on 26 December morning, with the Air Quality Index (AQI) measuring 383, the problem doesn’t quite seem to get resolved with no long term solution in sight… And it’s not just Delhi, other major cities too are facing similar issues… Mumbai’s AQI measured ‘very poor’ near 400, Kolkata reels at severe and Lucknow too recorded the levels at ‘very poor’…

Early this week, following reports of the pollution levels, the Supreme Court-appointed Environment Pollution Control Authority (EPCA) had issued a three-day ban on industries and construction work in Delhi and NCR till December 26… Delhi government too is contemplating to bring in back the car rationing ‘Odd n Even’ rule if the need arises.
