The air quality in every part of the Delhi NCR is so hazardous including Dwarka. It has been seen that the pollution level has increased very sharply which is causing problems for young and old people in the city, the residents are facing health issues due to bad air conditions.
The situation is much more hazardous than the last year, from the past two days with wind blowing in the city, the pollutants in the air have reduced to some levels but there are no solutions to bring back the situations to healthy air quality.
The air quality has shown levels up to 907 which is maximum for any city after Lahore. It is measured almost second-highest reading in the world, A healthy and good quality air is measured between an AIR Quality index of 0-15, ’51-100 ‘satisfactory’, 101-200 ‘moderate’, 201-300 ‘poor’, 301-400 ‘very poor’ and 401-500 ‘severe’. An AQI above 500 falls in the ‘severe plus’ category.
Dwarka’s air has deteriorated over the years due to an increase in construction activity and also because the place had become a transit hub. The number of vehicles going through Dwarka has increased and several construction projects are taking place which is generating a huge amount of dust.
Talking about the capital Delhi is the most populated city in the country, This is shocking to know that after so much maintenance of Delhi government and not cracking crackers this Diwali, It again leads to pollution levels up to 900+.
It is being said that dust pollution and pollution due to the airport activities have caused the worst condition in Dwarka this year. Environment observer says if you need to improve the air quality you must be careful and not to burn plastic items, use environmentally friendly cleaners and use energy-efficient light bulbs and appliances
The government has also decided to close school and universities for 3-4 working days, pollution masks are also provided in the schools to protect children from unhealthy air quality in Delhi NCR including Dwarka.
