Delhi’s AQI continues to deteriorate, remains in 'poor' category at 294
Delhi’s air quality index continued to remain in the “poor” category on Monday even as the pollution levels were expected to rise further in the Capital, NDTV reported. The AQI of Delhi was 218 at 3 pm on Tuesday, government-run monitoring agency System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research, or SAFAR, said.
SAFAR said the air quality was likely to be in the “very poor” category by Wednesday because of a reduction in wind speed and a change in the wind direction. The 24-hour average AQI in the Capital was 244 on Monday. It was 254 on Sunday and 287 on Saturday.
