Delhi air quality from ‘severe’ to ‘very poor’

A day after entering the “severe” category, there was marginal improvement in Delhi’s air quality as it slipped to the “very poor” category on Monday. Delhi’s 24-hour air quality index (AQI) was 347 at 4 pm on Monday. An AQI between 201 and 300 is considered “poor”, 301 and 400 “very poor”, and 401 and 500 “severe”.

The AQI was 407 on Sunday. The city’s air quality was last classified in the “severe” category on 4 November, when the AQI was 447.




The Commission for Air Quality Management (CAQM) on Sunday directed authorities in Delhi-NCR to ban non-essential construction work in the area under the third phase of the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP). Under the third phase, there will be a ban on the work of breaking the buildings. The step was taken due to the deteriorating air quality of Delhi as the 24-hour average air quality index stood at 407 at 4 pm on Sunday.

Under Phase-3, stricter restrictions will be enforced on construction and demolition activities in the NCR. However, the ban will not apply to essential projects and non-polluting activities such as plumbing, carpentry, interior decoration and electrical work. The construction ban will not apply to other projects including national security, defence, railways, healthcare, railways, airports and metro rail.
