Pollution levels drop in Delhi

January 15, 2016, 10:18 AM IST by CarWale Team

The pollution levels have dropped at most places in Delhi as compared to the last year. Though it is still not clear if that is due to the odd-even rule or because the weather has been better, residents of the city will certainly get cleaner air to breathe.

As per reports, PM 2.5 levels have gone down by more than 50 per cent at nine locations out of 16 as compared to the levels before the odd-even plan was put in place. As per The Energy and Resources Institute, pollution levels have started dipping after January 8 as the weather conditions improved after the initial dip die to low temperatures.

The Delhi Pollution Control Committee said they are still compiling raw data and comparing it with previous data. If the weather continues to be better for three or four more days, conclusive data to measure the impact of the odd-even rule can be recorded. While vehicular pollution continues to be a major contributor towards the bad quality of air, other sources like brick kilns, firewood usage and industry discharges also need to be regulated to find a long-term solution.
