Earlier a government forecasting agency stated that the air quality in Delhi likely to fall poor by October. When we talk about the air quality in Gurgaon, then it reached up to 283 today. Many metro stations in NCR also recorded ACI around 200. The air quality may be several types as per its air quality index.

Delhi To Launch Anti-Air Pollution Campaign From October
The Delhi government said that they would start an anti-pollution campaign from the second week of October to deal with the unbearable pollution. The center is being established in Najafgarh to produce a chemical that has been used in the anti-pollution campaign. Delhi environment minister Gopal Rai said that he also appealed with the center and neighboring states to use the Chemical that is prepared by the Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI).
The Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal will launch the anti-pollution campaign after associating with the ministry of environment, Road and transport, PWD, and Delhi police. They also included the Jal board, and Municipal Corporation to take an active part in this campaign to deal with the bad air quality. The air pollution is not new in Delhi as people facing bad quality air all over the Capital, but due to coronavirus lockdown, it comes under the good category.
Air Quality Index At A Different Place In Delhi
The air quality deteriorated to the very poor first time in the national Capital region after coronavirus unlock. The overall AQI comes around 309 as Anand Vihar has the highest AQI 380 as per the Central pollution control board. On Wednesday the pollution level at different places in Delhi is as follows-
- Anand vihar-380
- Dwarka sector 8- 376
- Jahangirpuri- 349
- Rohini- 353
AQI is neighbouring cities like Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Greater Noida, and Bhiwani are also surging and moved up to 310, 346, 327, and 312 respectively. So, there are no other ways left to minimize the air quality index in NCR besides starting this campaign. We all hope that this will certainly lower the AQI and slowly make it under the good category.
