Delhi air quality reaches all time ‘Hazardous Levels’



The air quality in Delhi has gone way below normal standards. The city woke up to ‘severe’ air quality today under a blanket of thick haze, on 7th of November as pollution levels breached the permissible standards by multiple times.

The moisture combined with pollutants shrouded the city resulting in a thick cover of haze. The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) recorded ‘severe’ air quality, meaning the air quality was extremely bad for the people.

Parking Fees increased upto 4 times to curb the increasing air pollution

The Kejriwal Led  Delhi Govt. has increased the parking fees by up to 4 times in order to curb the parking of automobiles in the capital city. The Supreme Court may step into the matter through its mandated Environment Pollution Prevention and Control Authority.

The odd-even car rationing scheme may come into play once again if the situation deteriorates further and persists for at least 48 hours. Schools will be forced to shut down for considerable period of days.

According to Dipankar Saha, CPCB’s air lab chief, “Total calm conditions, marked by the complete absence of wind has led to the situation. The moisture has trapped emissions from ground level sources,”

The last time air was recorded for such low quality was on October 20, a day after Diwali festivities, when firecrackers were set off. The forecast for next couple of days don’t seem to come as a respite as well as the indicators are expected to be in the ‘hazardous’ range.

People will be highly prone to respiratory illness on prolonged exposure. The severity of the air quality needs to be considered with utmost urgency as it can easily affect the healthy people and those with existing respiratory or cardiovascular diseases can run into serious problem.

The real-time pollution monitors displayed alarmingly high concentration of PM2.5 and PM10, which are ultrafine particulates having the ability to enter the respiratory system and subsequently the bloodstream of humans and animals, causing irreversible harm sometimes.
