FIRE-EARTH Alert: India Declares Air Pollution Emergency in Capital, Delhi

  • Hazardous air pollutants exceed about 20 times the “safe limit” in the Indian Capital, Delhi, forcing authorities to declare a state of emergency and close the schools for t least three days.
  • Days of heavy smog have caused such massive buildup of harmful particles that air quality instruments cannot measure the pollution levels.

Major contributors to pollution levels include:

  • City traffic
  • Burning of agricultural waste in surrounding states of Haryana and Punjab
  • Badarpur coal-fired power station (SE Delhi)
  • Construction and demolition work
  • Smoldering fires at the Capital’s Bhalswa landfill
  • Diesel generators

Residents have been advised to stay indoor as much as they can and work from home.

  • Details of the Alert are available from FIRE-EARTH PULSARS.
