Air pollution has become country’s one of the grave concern. India is going through a very dark phase when it comes to pollution. The situation is worst in the capital, New Delhi. Delhi-NCR have already seen the consequences and bad effects in the past few years. And this year as well, the air quality was worst and it was giving nightmares to the Delhiites.


However, Delhiites can now take a sigh of relief rather they can breathe a sigh of relief after the air quality of Delhi improved drastically after heavy rain coupled with heavy hailstorms lashed all over the city.

Well, the overall air quality of Delhi was ‘moderate’ on Thursday, a significant improvement due to western disturbances, scattered rain and high wind speed, the air quality has finally improved drastically.

According to the data of Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), the overall AQI (Air Quality Index) of the city wasf 349 recorded on Wednesday, which falls in the ‘very poor’ category, however, after heavy rains and hailstorm the quality has improved to 171, which falls in the ‘moderate’ category.

Well, just for your information we should tell you that an AQI between 0 and 50 is considered ‘good’, 51 and 100 ‘satisfactory’, 101 and 200 ‘moderate’, 201 and 300 ‘poor’, 301 and 400 ‘very poor’, and between 401 and 500 ‘severe’.

It’s a sigh of relief for the Delhiites that the air quality is now on moderate, excluding the four areas in the city. Regions like  Ghaziabad, Greater Noida, Noida and Gurugram also recorded ‘moderate’ air quality. Which is a very good news for the people.
