According to the System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR), the air quality in Delhi remains to be in the very poor category. The Air Quality Index (AQI) in the national capital stood at 370 on Monday morning.

Despite the poor air quality index, schools and colleges reopened in Delhi for all classes. Earlier, this month, the Commission for Air Quality Management (CAQM) had issued a series of directions to the governments of Delhi and neighbouring states to deal with the air pollution crisis. The government also instructed schools and colleges in Delhi-NCR to remain shut on account of the high pollution levels in the city.

According to ANI, PM10 was recorded at 353 in the very poor category and PM2.5 was recorded at 211 in the very poor category at 7:53 am today.

The AQI in Mathura Road stood at 406, while AQI in the Delhi University area was recorded at 416 dipping the air quality in the severe category. The AQI of Noida and Gurugram was recorded at 391 and 369 respectively.

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.

According to SAFAR, local surface winds are anticipated to increase moderately on 29th and 30th November. From December 1, wind speed and temperature are likely to decrease leading to the slight deterioration of air quality. The air quality is expected to improve around December 5 and 6.

No CNG sale in Delhi today, Dealers Association calls for protest; here’s why

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.

Mahagathbandhan, also known as the Grand Alliance, consists of political parties such as Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Indian National Congress (INC), Janata Dal (United), and Left parties including Communist Party of India (CPI), Communist Party of India (Marxist–Leninist) Liberation-CPIML (Liberation), and Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPIM).

RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, members of the Congress, and members of the Left Front joined Kumar as he made his claim for government formation before the governor by presenting the letter of support from the MLAs.

Nitish Kumar after his first session with the Governor said he has resigned and has informed all his MLAs. He split from the BJP for the second time in nine years. He said his resignation from the party was based on the feedback he received at an interaction with his party’s legislators.

Nitish Kumar charged the BJP with engaging in horse trading by offering some party leaders lucrative positions as ministers.
