According to CPCB’s website, Greater Noida is the third, while Noida has been the fifth most polluted city in the country. In just 24 hours in the industrial city, the wind has reached the Red Zone from Orange.
In fact, the emergency of pollution has come into force in Delhi and surrounding areas from October 15, although the government is taking several steps to reduce pollution. The central government has deployed CPCB teams to monitor pollution.
To tackle pollution, the Pollution Control Board has implemented an action plan to cover open-ended materials, not to do construction work, to shut down diesel powered generators and not to burn junk. According to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), the maximum temperature on Saturday was 34.7 and the minimum temperature was 16.8 degrees Celsius, three degrees below normal for the second consecutive day. Winds coming from the north-west direction are also bringing with them the smoke of the stubble burning in Punjab, Haryana.
