Air pollution down 50% in Lucknow against Diwali a year ago

Notably, it was lower than the a year ago.

This month, the Supreme Court banned the sale of crackers in and around Delhi till November 1 to prevent the repeat of 2016 air pollution, which was the worst that the national capital recorded in past 20 years.

The Environment Minister of Delhi, Imran Hussain, reviewed the situation of air quality in Delhi post Diwali-celebrations on Friday. "But this year, wind is blowing at a speed less than 10 km per hour and therefore is not able to suspend particulate matters' spread around us", Palawat said.

Former AAP leader Yogendra Yadav's party Swaraj India, however, reacted strongly against the pollution in the city a day after Diwali.

Also, the report of the Gurugram's air quality index on Friday was at 397 (very poor level), a day after Diwali festival. A marginal dip in levels of noise was also reported.

As per the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) data, a significant fall in the volume of particulars PM2.5, PM10 and gaseous pollutant SO2 (sulphur dioxide) was recorded across the national capital on the Diwali night, as compared to previous year.

A senior Delhi government official said that anti-crackers campaigns were held with the help of eco clubs at schools and colleges. Contrary to Sharma's claims the pollution level has crossed risky level in the city on the Diwali night.

Was the ban on sale of crakers a hit or miss?

"The economic interest of the traders and the manufacturers was involved; but once the Supreme Court had banned sale of fire crackers, the enforcement of the order should have been ensured by the Union Environment Ministry, Delhi Government, state governments of Uttar Pradesh and Haryana in the entire National Capital Region", said D S Rawat, Secretary General, ASSOCHAM.
