Know which cities of UP and Haryana are included in the 10 most polluted areas of the country.


New Delhi . Since Diwali, the level of pollution has been continuously increasing in all parts of the country. Pollution levels have increased due to factories in a city and construction works in a city. Awareness was spread by the government to curb the pollution, but it proved insufficient. Today’s level of pollution is at the top in Delhi-NCR region. The starch being burnt in Punjab is adding ghee to the fire to spoil the damaged air. These days the level of pollution in the air of many areas of the country is at its peak. If the standard of air quality index is 500, then in many cities this index has reached above 400.

Alam is that there is a different sheet of mist in such areas. The air quality index of cities has been released by CPCB, according to which 7 of the 10 most polluted areas in the country are from Uttar Pradesh alone. All these cities are adjacent to Delhi or a few kilometers away. Some cities of Haryana also have poor air quality index.

This is the situation in Delhi where there has been an appeal for not to burn firecrackers on the day of Diwali and to stop pollution from rising. This appeal of the government also showed some effect, if the firecrackers were less lit than last year, then the level of pollution remained low or else the situation here would have been worse. The air quality has started to deteriorate from the second week of October, which has not improved yet. Scientists are saying that it should remain like this for a few days.
