According to the Air Quality Index (AQI), at present the AQI level of Delhi’s air is 339, which is 110 points less than the AQI level of 450.

Every year since the onset of winter, Delhi-NCR is engulfed in smog due to stubble burning, vehicular smoke and other reasons. Because of this, the amount of particulate matter in the air of Delhi goes up to 450 and the air becomes poisonous. To tackle this problem, it was decided to partially ban diesel vehicles.

Particulate matter 2.5 (PM 2.5) also exceeds the most dangerous level due to stubble burning in the neighboring states of Delhi, Haryana and Punjab in winter. Due to this, difficulty in breathing and many lung diseases are increasing rapidly in Delhi.

There is already a ban on old diesel vehicles

In view of rising pollution in the national capital, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) had in 2016 ruled to ban diesel vehicles older than 10 years. As per the NGT guidelines, the Delhi government has banned diesel vehicles older than 10 years and petrol vehicles older than 15 years. Delhi Transport Department is no longer issuing PUC to such vehicles.

The old vehicles that have been banned have been declared as scrap by the government, due to which there will be no purchase and sale of these vehicles. However, now such vehicles can be converted to electric to save them from scrap. For this, the Delhi government has allowed companies to sell EV Retrofitting Kits.

The Delhi government has prepared a 15 point action plan to tackle air pollution in winter, under which people have been appealed to keep the engine off at red traffic lights. For this, the Delhi government has started a campaign named ‘Red Light on Car Off’ on the main roads of the city. This campaign has been started in Delhi from 28 October.

Along with pollution from vehicles, a strategy has been prepared to deal with pollution due to construction works and pollution due to stubble burning. Its main goal is to raise the level of Air Quality Standard (AQI) in Delhi. The Delhi government is taking the help of 2,500 civil defense volunteers for this campaign.
