HT Ludhiana Live - - Front Page -

The World Health Or­gan­i­sa­tion (WHO) declar­ing Lud­hi­ana as the fourth most pol­luted city in the world in Septem­ber 2011 has had lit­tle ef­fect on the in­dus­try or city ad­min­is­tra­tion. In its re­port, the WHO had cat­e­gor­i­cally said the city had the high­est par­tic­u­late pol­lu­tion in the air. Emis­sions from in­dus­tries, out­dated autorickshaws/vans, con­struc­tion of roads/fly­overs, and burn­ing of field stub­ble and waste ma­te­rial, are the ma­jor con­trib­u­tors to air pol­lu­tion.
