Delhi air quality continues to worsen, authorities announce measures to curb air pollution

As Delhi and its satellite areas stares at another winter with bad air quality, the Delhi government, in collaboration with the Pusa Institute of Technology, is working on a technique which converts agricultural waste into compost and provides an option for farmers to dispose of the crop remains without burning it

Air quality in New Delhi hit an eight-month low, just a notch shy of the very poor category on October 13, due to calm winds and low temperature that allowed accumulation of pollutants.
