Although last year was not bad. But the time from 15 October to 15 November is considered extremely sensitive in terms of air quality.
The amount of carbon in Delhi’s air is continuously increasing. According to Pollution Watch, Safar (System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research) India, developed by Ministry of Earth Sciences and Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology, Pune, Delhi’s air quality is in poor category. Under which the number of particulate PM2.5 is 110, the number of PM10 is constant at 201. According to the recommendation, however, the total biomass incineration in the total calculation of PM2.5 is currently about two percent.
The air quality index in Delhi reached 266 on Sunday. If the index is between zero and 50 points, it is good, between 51 and 100 is satisfactory, between 101 and 200 is moderate, 201 to 300 is poor, 301 to 400 is very poor and 401 to 500 is severe. Is considered to be of category.
In the last four days, the incidents of stubble burning by farmers in Punjab and Haryana have decreased by 58 percent compared to the previous year. Still, according to the Punjab Pollution Control Board, 630 incidents of stubble burning have been reported till October 12. But this year, some awareness is being seen among the farmers. Due to which the incidence of stubble burning is seen to be 60 percent in Punjab, 48 percent in Haryana and 75 percent in Uttar Pradesh.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has expressed concern over the increasing level of pollution in the last four days. He said on Sunday that whatever he had achieved through the hard work on the pollution front will prove to be zero. There is a lot that we need to do for Delhi and we are trying our best for it. But other agencies also need to work unitedly to prevent burning of stubble.
However, the matter of relief is that this year the level of pollution is not as bad as it was being given for the last few years. But it is also because due to the monsoon that lasted till October 10, the moisture content in the air of Delhi NCR has remained sufficient, which is not allowing the carbon particles to spread. But if the amount of carbon particles in the air is not controlled, the pollution in the air can reach deadly levels if the fog spreads.
