National Air Quality Index

To monitor air quality, Delhi to get its own index

Date of Release: 
Dec 27 2015

Delhi will soon have its own air quality index to monitor its toxic air. In the pipeline for some months now, the environment department is expected to launch a mobile application for the new index by the end of this year.

With the new index, Delhi will get three separate government-run portals to give information about air quality. The other two are the National Air Quality Index and the SAFAR index.

“We have been working on the system for some time now. A substantial amount of work has been completed already,” said environment secretary Ashwani Kumar.
