Delhi pollution: Air quality ‘very poor’ again, after two days of relief

New Delhi: The air quality of Delhi, which breathed relatively clean air over the last two days, once again turned ‘very poor’ on Monday as the impact of sporadic drizzle in flushing out pollutants ebbed and more vehicles hit the streets on the first working day of the week.

However, forecasters have emphasised that the city’s air quality will remain in the ‘very poor’ category and chances of it deteriorating further in the coming days is less as incursion of pollutants from external sources has stopped.

The Central Pollution Control Board’s (CPCB) National Air Quality Index (AQI) had Delhi in the ‘very poor’ zone with a score of 326. It was 292 on Sunday and 298 on Saturday.
