The Chief Justice of India requested the central government devise an emergency strategy to address New Delhi’s poisonous air quality and deadly smog conditions on Saturday (Nov 13), describing the situation as “extremely serious.”
On Friday, India’s federal pollution control board instructed states and local governments to be “completely prepared” for emergency measures to combat the capital’s rising haze. We’ve been obliged to wear masks at home as well; the situation is quite bad,” remarked N. V. Ramana, the Supreme Court of India’s top legal official, while seeking clarification on the government’s efforts.
The air quality in Delhi will deteriorate, and an increase in the surface wind may help… it will deteriorate further in the next two to three days. “Make a hasty decision,” he said. Due to crop stubble burning, transportation emissions, coal-fired plants outside the city, and other industrial pollutants, as well as open waste burning and dust, Delhi is frequently named as the world’s most polluted metropolis.
According to data from the federal pollution control agency on Saturday, the Air Quality Index in and around the capital city reached 470 to 490 on a scale of 500, despite the smog reducing vision. This amount of pollution means that healthy people will be affected by the air and those who already have ailments.
A Supreme Court special bench has begun hearing a student’s complaint about rising levels of air pollution. Chief Justice Ramana suggested that the government consider a two-day lockdown to protect civilians from escalating toxicity and that the administration should report the court on Monday about the emergency measures done to enhance air quality.
