CAAQMS monitors the level of pollutants - Sulphur dioxide, oxides of Nitrogen, Carbon dioxide, Carbon monoxide, suspended particulate matter (SPM), Hydrocarbon, ozone among others in the ambient atmosphere. The KSPCB will install the monitoring system in the city corporations in the initial phase and other districts in the second phase.
