Noida (UP): The air quality at some locations in Gurgaon remained “really bad” on Sunday, while it was “poor” in parts of Gautam Buddh Nagar, Ghaziabad and Faridabad, according to a government agency. There was heavy concentration of PM 2.5 and PM 10 toxins in the air of the 4 immediate neighbouring districts of Delhi, according to the air quality index (AQI) maintained by the Central Pollution Control Panel (CPCB).
According to the index, an AQI between zero and 50 is considered ‘great’, 51 and 100 ‘satisfying’, 101 and 200 ‘moderate’, 201 and 300 ‘poor’, 301 and 400 ‘very bad’, and 401 and 500 ‘severe’. In Gurgaon, an AQI of 319 was recorded by the station in Sector 151 followed by 285 at the Teri Gram, 268 at Vikas Sadan and 198 at NISE Gwal Pahari, according to the CPCB data at 7 pm.
The AQI in Faridabad also mainly remained in the bad category. It was recorded at 297 at the station in Sector 11 followed by 276 at New Industrial Town and 240 at Sector 16 A and 231 at Sector 30, the information showed. In Gautam Buddh Nagar’s Noida, the AQI was determined at 255 by the station at Sector 62 and 224 at Sector 116, while the stations at sectors 1 and 125 showed “insufficient” information for the last 24 hours.

Adjoining district Ghaziabad’s Loni had an AQI of 282 at 7 pm followed by 247 at Sanjay Nagar and 241 at Indirapuram, while no official data was readily available for Vasundhara.
