The real causes of pollution in Delhi will now be known at some point. Identification of sources of pollution on a real-time basis has started from Monday. Delhi is the first state in the country to do so. Prime Minister Arvind Kejriwal launched the Super-Site and Mobile Air Quality Monitoring Station at SBV Rouse Avenue School on Monday to identify sources of pollution in real time.

On this occasion, Arvind Kejriwal said that now we will know every hour from real-time source allocation research, which causes pollution and hourly forecast for next 3 days will also be known. This will help us learn more about the pollution caused by vehicles, industry and biomass combustion in each area and help to combat it.

He said real-time pollution analysis shows that outdoor pollution in Delhi accounts for a third, while biomass accounts for a fourth and vehicles for 17-18 percent. We launched the EV policy to reduce pollution in Delhi, bought thousands of new electric buses, increased the number of trees to 23.6% and launched the Red Light On, Gaadi Off campaign. Thanks to these efforts, pollution in Delhi was the lowest this year compared to the past 5 years. Environment Minister Gopal Rai, Environmental Adviser Reena Gupta and senior officers of the concerned department attended the occasion.

Will be able to trace the source of pollution even at the district level

Kejriwal said the Real Time Source Apportionment Study will tell us every hour at what time and for what reason there is pollution in Delhi’s air, after which we can take steps to stop it. For example, if there is more dust pollution in a department, the dust will be found to be blowing there and efforts will be made to control it. Similarly, if industrial emissions are high within a department, efforts will be made to rectify this. Biomass combustion accounts for about a quarter of Delhi’s pollution.

mobile bus will be driven

Kejriwal said a mobile van has also been launched. If the mobile van is successful, we can buy many such vans and park them in different corners of Delhi. Why the pollution is more in the hotspot area will be known and then we will try to reduce the pollution by paying attention to that specific source.

In 2025, 80% of buses will be electric

The Chief Minister said there will be 11,000 buses in Delhi by 2025. Of these, 80 percent of the buses will be electric. He said that Delhi’s roads and footpaths will be machine-cleaned daily, roads will be washed daily. This will reduce pollution a lot. Mud flies off the roads of Delhi while sweeping. Even when vehicles move when there is mud on the road, the mud is blown up. If we clean up that soil, it will have a huge impact on pollution.

Will develop a plan with NCR

Environment Minister Gopal Rai said that this station is set up so that the source of pollution is known in real time and a solution can be found accordingly. In the future, based on advice and guidance from scientists from IIT Kanpur and IIT Delhi, information on vehicles, dust, biomass combustion and local pollution, etc. will be available in real time. Based on this, we will consult with NCR governments and make plans to control pollution. This provides us with scientific data.

Delhi NCR pollution washed away by rain

After the rains in Delhi-NCR, there was a huge drop in pollution levels. Pollution levels in Delhi are expected to remain in the bad category for the next two days. It rained in most parts of Delhi-NCR until 8:30am Monday morning, leading to a 124 point drop in Delhi’s pollution index.

Delhi recorded a pollution index of 207 on Monday, followed by 179 in Faridabad, 113 in Bahadurgarh, 100 in Ballabhgarh, 156 in Greater Noida, 170 in Noida and 117 in Gurugram, according to the Central Pollution Control Board. SAFAR predicts that Delhi’s pollution level will remain in the bad category for the next two days. Winds are expected to blow from the northwest in Delhi on Tuesday.

Due to the strong wind blowing at the bottom, pollution will remain low. According to the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), pollution levels dropped due to favorable weather conditions. Due to the falling temperature due to rain, the mixing height remained at 500 meters on Tuesday. The ventilation index was also below average.
