On the next day of Diwali 2021, air pollution has reached a dangerous situation in many cities. Air pollution in Delhi-NCR is in the ‘very poor’ category due to the smoke from crackers released on Diwali. People are facing many problems due to pollution. Along with burning in the eyes of many people, there is also trouble in breathing. According to doctors, it would be better if asthma patients, elderly and children stay at home.
Air pollution level in Noida is very poor
The condition of people in Noida adjacent to Delhi is also bad due to air pollution. Visibility in Noida reduced significantly on Friday morning due to smoke. People were very upset because of the smog. The major reason for the smog is believed to be the firecrackers released in the district till late night.
Where how much AQI?
According to the Uttar Pradesh Pollution Control Board (UPCB), AQI- 465 at Char Murti Chowk in Noida, AQI- 465 in Sector 125, AQI- 424 in Sector 62, AQI- 465 in Sector 1. In Noida, a white sheet of mist has taken the entire district in its lap.
Despite the ban, there was a lot of fireworks
For the last several years, the level of pollution increases very rapidly in many districts of Delhi-NCR on Diwali and its second day. This is the reason why the NGT and the government had decided that this time the sale of firecrackers will be completely banned and only then will the concerned departments work to improve the level of air pollution. The claims proved to be hollow.
