Residents concerned over 'poor' air quality in Delhi-NCR

The air quality of national capital Delhi and its neighbouring city Noida is continuously deteriorating.

According to System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR), the Air Quality Index of Delhi (AQI) was at 283 on October 14.

The neighbour city Noida has also recorded 'very poor' air quality, with overall AQI at 319.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, residents shared concerns over the deteriorating air quality.

Residents of Noida said they have felt change in air quality and the pollution level is increasing every day.

"We have seen changes in air quality, now we can see pollutants in air.

Stubble burning is a matter of concern but it is not the only reason behind the poor air, factory pollution is also here," said a local.

It is to remember that incidents of stubble burning have started in neighbour states due to which air quality has gone down.

Traffic pollution, garbage burning, stubble burning are some of the reasons for air pollution.
