The Central Pollution Control Board and National Green Tribunal (NGT)  has released a monthly report. This report depicts that the air quality levels have been reaching at 350 and above for last three months.
An air quality level between 0-50 is said to be Good, 51-100 Satisfactory, 101-200 Moderate, 201-300 Poor, 301-400 Very Poor, and 401-500 Severe. The particulates (PM2.5/PM10) are a major concern. Steps to control these dust emission from roads, construction activity, traffic, and industries need to be strictly prohibited. Otherwise, this condition can turn to severe. It is important to take important measures in this direction, otherwise air quality can turn to worse, making it more difficult to breathe in open air. Not only, people are getting breathing issues, this continuous dust in the air is affecting visibility also.
