Delhi's Air Quality Index further slips into 'very poor' category today

New Delhi/IBNS: The overall Air Quality Index (AQI) in Delhi slipped to 386 in the 'very poor' category on Saturday morning, stated the System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research (SAFAR).

As per reports, the PM10 was recorded at 360 in the 'very poor' category while the PM 2.5 was recorded at 386 in the 'very poor' category at 7:50 am.

Gurugram and Noida recorded AQI of 355 and 391 respectively, also registering in the "very poor" category.

SAFAR has cautioned that people may experience health effects and a significant increase in respiratory problems.

"The share of stubble burning (Count 274) related pollutants is 8 per cent in Delhi's PM2.5. Mixing layer height and wind are the dominant factors controlling air quality. From 29th significant improvement in AQI is expected due to high wind speed," said SAFAR.

As per SAFAR, the air quality will further deteriorate to AQI 428, which would be in the "severe" category.

Meanwhile, the Delhi government has once again decided to reimpose a ban on construction and demolition activities acting as per Supreme Court's directions.

Sschools, colleges and other educational institutions are scheduled to resume physical classes from Monday.
