What is the main reason of pollution in the country

Actually, two elements are responsible for pollution, of which PM 2.5 and PM 10 are the major particles. These dust particles are so fine that it is difficult for anyone to see them. The most dangerous PM 2.5 particles are those that easily reach the lungs of the people through the breath and give rise to different types of respiratory diseases. PM2.5 up to 60 micrograms per cubic meter is considered safe. The main reasons of pollution in the country are smoke emanating from the vehicles, burning fuel for cooking, electricity generation, industry, construction, burning of garbage and stubble burning.

In the next 2-3 days, the wind may again become ‘bad’.

Safar said that the air quality in Delhi and its adjoining areas has been recorded in the ‘moderate’ category this morning. This improvement has come due to the increase in wind speed for the last several days. Along with this, the capital of the capital is expected to improve further in the coming days due to the rains. However, dusty winds can also increase pollution again in the coming days. Due to the effect of dusty winds, Delhi’s air can again fall into the ‘moderate’ to ‘bad’ category in the next 2 to 3 days.
