The Supreme Court-appointed Environment Pollution Control Authority (EPCA) has exhorted Delhiites to use public transport from Thursday, till Nov 10 when the air quality of the national capital is likely to deteriorate.

The absence of environment ministers from the crucial meet was questioned by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his Cabinet colleague, who said neighbouring states should take the issue of air pollution "seriously".

Weathermen have advised caution for residents of Delhi as the city's Air Quality Index (AQI) continue to score below "severe" category after breaching the 400 mark. "Only then can we find a soln (sic)".

He said that the stubble burning had reduced by 30 per cent over past year, which was good but not enough.

He underlined that the steps taken by states to control stubble burning "are far from satisfactory".

Mr Harsh Vardhan said that similar to previous year this time, there will be a campaign for the same problem and around 70 teams will be in field to deal with the situation.

There was significant representation from non-state actors working in India, who made their own commitments "I bring you greetings from the most polluted city in the world", Arvind Kumar, head of the Centre for Chest Surgery and Lung Transplantation at Ganga Ram Hospital, Delhi, and founder of Lung Care Foundation, said. We might have to stop the functioning of private cars if air pollution increases in the city. Delhi's government has also implemented the necessary arrangements to execute "Odd-Even" formula if air pollution crisis persists. Said Dr Tedros, "We are eager to hear the views of countries and partners on this target, and we need to do more work together on the scientific foundation for it".

The top court is seized of matters in which several issues related to air pollution in the Delhi-NCR have been raised.

CPCB Chairperson SP Singh Parihar has also issued directions to construction agencies, municipal corporations and land owning industries to comply with the directions of the NGT and the CPCB and ensure corrective actions within 48 hours in cases of air polluting activities as reported by the CPCB inspection teams.

The PM2.5 level was recorded at 210 with fine particulates can be a matter of more serious health concern than PM10 (particles in the air with less than 10 micrometres of diameter).

There was also a slight reduction in the levels of PM10 and PM2.5 pollutants. During the period, the average Total Suspended Particulate (TSP) level in Delhi was approximately five times the WHO's annual average standard.

"The prevailing meteorological conditions are less favorable for dispersal of pollutants for next two days due to low wind speed across the northern region", Dr. Gufran Beig, Project Director at System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research (SAFAR) told the media.
