Delhi air quality

According to the HT, the revised Grap, which is generally phased in from 1 October every year, has been not executed in the National Capital Region (NCR) yet. Because of this Delhi’s air quality index (AQI) has remained below the crucial threshold of 201. The initial phase of GRAP includes 27 steps, such as the closure of buildings and waste sites more extensive than 500 square meters that are not reported on the government’s “web portal” for dust management, as well as the performance of periodic mechanized cleaning and Water sprinkling on the road.

On Thursday, Delhi’s 24-hour intermediate Air Quality Index (AQI) stood at 177, classified as ‘moderate’. While there is only one unit increase in AQI compared to Wednesday’s reading of 176, there has been an incremental reduction in air quality over the past few days. The decline overlapped with a drop in temperatures and an increase in the number of farming fires across the northern grasslands. For reference, Delhi’s AQI was 155 on Tuesday and 146 on Monday.

Last year, the Commission for Air Quality Management (CAQM), accountable for executing Grap, indicated that they would depend on the Early Warning System (EWS) for Delhi to initiate aggressive measurements. But, a CAQM spokesperson said that although they proactively act based on EWS predictions for Stages 2, 3, and 4 they are required to wait until the Air Quality Index exceeds 200 and enters the “poor” category before enforcing Stage 1 measures. Here we have shared all the information that we had. If we get any information then we will update you soon. Stay tuned to us for more updates.
