The air quality in Delhi was in the "very poor" category on Tuesday morning.

Due to deteriorating air quality in the national capital, authorities have declared emergency measures for 10 days starting today.

SAFAR has further issued a warning that the city's air quality is expected to deteriorate to "severe plus emergency" category after Diwali and it will be "bad" on November 8 even if "partially toxic crackers" are burnt compared to previous year.

The Central Pollution Control Board informed the Supreme Court that it had created social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook where citizens could lodge complaints about pollution in Delhi-NCR.

He was addressing mediaperson in New Delhi after a detailed review meeting with NCR Ministers and Senior officers on implementation of Air Pollution Control Action Plan for NCR. As emergency measures are being taken to check pollution in Delhi-NCR, the government has banned diesel and petrol vehicles ranging from 10 to 15 years old. The recommendation was made in view of the heavy pollution caused by such vehicles which might add to the woes of the national capital which is already battling alarming levels of pollution, another CPCB official said. An official with the Centre-run System of Air Quality Forecasting And Research (SAFAR) said the improvement in air quality can be attributed to increased speed of early morning winds.

His presentation focused mainly on tackling air pollution in cities and improving health and climate. The Delhi government has also been asked to deploy 400 sprinklers as a backup to mitigate any crisis.

From Thursday, there will be a halt of all construction activities involving excavation.

The apex court had passed these directions on a note placed before it by advocate Aparajita Singh, assisting the court as an amicus curiae in the air pollution matter, seeking urgent directions to correct the prevailing situation of pollution. Of the total vehicular pollution, 40 per cent to 45 percent comes from two-wheelers and another 30 to 35 percent from four-wheelers.

He noted that Kampala and the entire country, is still relying more on qualitative than quantitative indicators to monitor and asses the ambient quality of air.

The government has also directed the transport departments and traffic police in these districts to intensify checking of polluting vehicles and control traffic congestion in Delhi and other NCR districts during the period.
