Delhi once again has smog. The air quality is so awful today, the day before Diwali, that smoke has completely enveloped the nation’s capital. The overall air quality index (AQI) in Delhi was 251 at 6.30 am, according to the System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR).

Gopal Rai, the minister for the environment in Delhi, announced Wednesday that the government had begun implementing its 15-point winter action plan to combat air pollution. The action plan, according to Rai, will concentrate on issues such as crackers, open rubbish burning, managing stubble, and dust pollution. When the proposal was unveiled in October, the minister claimed that 39% of Delhi’s air pollution is caused locally, with the remaining 20% coming from nearby National Capital Region cities.

The creation, storage, selling, and setting off of firecrackers during Diwali are all prohibited by the Delhi government, and breaches are punishable by fines and jail time. The Delhi government has launched the “Red Light on Vehicle Off” campaign to lessen vehicle pollution. Public leaders and representatives will encourage drivers to stop at red lights as part of this campaign.
