New Delhi (NVI): Aided by continuing winds, the overall air quality in Delhi-NCR improved to “moderate” category today as the air pollution was scheduled to be discussed in Lok Sabha later during the day.
Meanwhile, the central agencies concerned have decided to continue their concerted joint drive for next 15 days, which entails regular monitoring and intensifying the measures that are currently already underway to check the air pollution. This was decided at a meeting between Secretary, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, C.K. Mishra with Chief Secretaries of Delhi, Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh to take stock of the air situation here on Monday.
The Delhi-NCR recorded an overall 218 on Air Quality Index early today compared to 211 on Monday, the best in last 12 days as moderate winds countered the effects of stubble burning.
