    India Meteorological Department (IMD) has actually anticipated that the Air Quality Index (AQI) of the nationwide capital is expected to enter the ‘serious ‘category on Diwali.

    ” Currently Delhi’s Air Quality is extremely bad and is expected to go worse to extreme tomorrow. It can be worse if there are additional emissions. AQI will improve after Diwali and there are chances of drizzle and rain on November 15,” Dr VK Soni, Head, Environment and Research Centre of IMD told ANI.

    ” Throughout this period the meteorological conditions are not favourable for great dispersion of air pollutants and further there will be little extra emission from firecrackers and traffic. Although the federal government has actually taken a great deal of actions to manage air contamination, still these external emissions will impact negatively.”
