No construction work in Delhi till Sunday: LG

Other pollution monitoring agencies - Delhi Pollution Control Board (DPCC), Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) - Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF &CC), US Embassy also highlighted that due to steady breeze, air quality slightly improved.

On Wednesday, many construction agencies, municipal corporations and Delhi Pollution Control Committee were instructed to ensure water sprinkling around the capital. For the last few days, a thick blanket of haze has been enveloping Delhi and parts of the National Capital Region (NCR) for the last few days. Gusty wind is likely to continue over Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh and Delhi during the next 24 hours, IMD said in its official statement.

"Therefore, it is expected that dusty conditions will prevail in Delhi over the next three days".

As per the Air Quality Index level - from 0-50 is considered "good", 51-100 is "satisfactory", 101-200 is "moderate", 201-300 is "poor", 301-400 is "very poor", and 401 and above is "severe" or "hazardous". In November a year ago, both PM2.5 and PM10 had spiked which was posing a serious health hazard.

According to weather experts, this year, due to the high temperature in Rajasthan, the effect of the dust storm due to the strong winds is seen as condensing in the atmosphere of dust in the Delhi-NCR region.

However, the increase in pollution levels now is mainly due to drastic increase in coarse particles in air.

New Delhi's level of PM2.5, tiny particulate matter that can dangerously clog lungs, exceeded 170 June 15 morning, more than six times higher than the World Health Organization considers safe. "The average PM 10 levels were over 800 on Thursday, over four times the average air pollution recorded this month", he said.

"We have also called a meeting of construction companies and if the beyond severe condition persist we would stop the construction activities", he said. "CPCB convened an urgent meeting of the Task Force regarding implementation of Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) today and issued necessary directions to contain local dust sources".
