Delhi to is­sue pol­lu­tion ad­vi­sories

Down to Earth - - THE FORTNIGHT -

DELHI'S POL­LU­TION con­trol body is plan­ning daily warn­ings in­form­ing peo­ple about pol­lu­tion hotspots and ad­vice that in­cludes go­ing car-free. This move came af­ter the Na­tional Green Tri­bunal (NGT) asked the Delhi gov­ern­ment to roll out such mea­sures within a week. "We are work­ing on a dash­board on the Delhi Pol­lu­tion Con­trol Com­mit­tee (DPCC) web­site that will have no­ti­fi­ca­tions about pol­luted ar­eas and the mea­sures peo­ple can take," said Delhi en­vi­ron­ment and for­est sec­re­tary Ash­wani Ku­mar. The dash­board would be mo­bile-friendly while a mo­bile app is also in the works. Delhi recorded some of the worst in­stances of smog in Novem­ber this year.
