In an earlier article, we had also informed you about how the AQI level has improved for the larger part of India including the Indo-Gangetic plain and Delhi NCR, PM10 and PM2.5 came down by around 35 to 40 per cent in Delhi, and out of the cities located in the Indo-Gangetic plain 17 moved to the ‘Satisfactory’ category and seven to the ‘Good’ category. All of this data is from the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB).

IFS Officer, Susanta Nanda, wrote, “What nature was… And what we had done to it🙂 This is Dhauladhar mountain range of Himachal, seen after 30 years, from Jalandhar (Punjab) after pollution drops to the lowest level in 30 years. This is approx. 200 km away straight.”
