The air quality index (AQI) in Delhi remained in the very poor yet again on Sunday. According to the System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research (SAFAR), the PM 2.5 was recorded at 372, declining the national capital’s air quality to a very poor category.

Residents of Delhi are dealing with bad air quality, but there is no hope of improvement as the city is blanketed in shallow fog. According to the IMD, Delhi will have shallow fog until December 1.

Today in the early morning, IMD tweeted that no fog conditions were reported at 0530 hrs IST. Moderate fog with visibility of the order of 200m was reported at Lucknow and Gaya. Shallow fog with visibility in the range of 500-1000 m is being reported at Delhi.

As per SAFAR, the air quality is likely to slightly improve to AQI 355 but will remain in the “very poor” category tomorrow.

SAFAR has advised the residents of Delhi, especially senior citizens, people with heart and lung disease and children to reduce long or heavy exertion.

Meanwhile, the air quality of Noida falls under the severe category as it recorded an AQI of 497 and the AQI of Gurugram was recorded as ‘very poor’ as it stood at 349.

An AQI between zero and 50 is considered good, 51 and 100 satisfactory, 101 and 200 moderate, 201 and 300 poor, 301 and 400 very poor, and 401 and 500 severe.

In the meantime, the Delhi government has prohibited the entry of all petrol and diesel-powered vehicles used to transport non-essential goods, citing rising pollution concerns. CNG and electric vehicles carrying non-essential supplies from neighbouring states have been allowed to enter Delhi as of Saturday (November 27).

On November 29, all government offices, schools, universities, and other educational institutions will reopen. The restriction on construction activity in the national capital had previously been lifted, but on Wednesday it was reinstated by the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court ordered the government to pay minimum wages to all workers who have been laid off as a result of the construction restriction and asked the CQAM to conduct a scientific investigation of air quality based on existing data from past years reflecting on recorded levels of air pollution.

CNG sale in Delhi

The Delhi Petrol Dealers Association (DPDA) has announced that there will be no CNG sale in Delhi on August 10 from 6 am to 10 pm. The reason for the closure of CNG pumps is the non-reimbursement of the electricity bills by Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL).

Delhi Association called for the protest as the reimbursement of the electricity bill of CNG pumps is not being done by IGL and is long overdue which has been causing them huge losses every day. The protest will affect about 250 CNG pumps in the capital.

In a letter last month, DPDA President Anurag Jain wrote, We have decided to go for no CNG sale on August 10 from 6 am to 10 pm as a mark of protest. He further said the DPDA is forced to take this step due to the reluctance shown by IGL to pay the actual electricity reimbursement of CNG facilities to the dealers of Delhi who are incurring huge financial losses every month.

In Delhi, the electricity bill of the petrol pumps is paid by IGL, and CNG consumes a lot of electricity. DPDA says that IGL has not been paying the electricity bill for a long time, due to which they are suffering huge losses. And this is the reason the association has announced it will close CNG pumps today.

DPDA said there was a meeting organized with IGL in March 2022 to solve the issue, and IGL even agreed on the reimbursement of the electricity bill. After this meeting, the dealers were assured that the issue would be resolved in a month. DPDA said the issue has not been resolved yet and IGL didn’t fulfill its promise.

The non-fulfillment of DPDA’s demands has led them to take the step of closure of CNG pumps in Delhi on August 10. CNG is currently being sold at Rs 75.61 per kg in Delhi.

Congress is holding a protest in Delhi despite the police had denied permission for it. The Paramilitary forces and the Delhi police have blocked the Vijay Chowk road and the route from Parliament to President’s House by barricades. Congress leaders are also planning to gherao PM’s house. Women personnel have been deployed on the other side of the barricades to stop the leaders from protesting.
