Delhi, Agra, Ghaziabad and Faridabad also had Air Quality Index in “very poor” category. According to Central Pollution Control Board, air quality index was recorded at 361 at noon in Delhi.

All construction activities involving excavation have been stopped in the national capital till Saturday. Under an aggressive ten day Clean Air Campaign, the Union Environment Ministry is monitoring the polluting activities to ensure quick action. Entry of trucks in Delhi has been banned till Saturday to curb pollution.
