Description

Burning crop residue worsens air quality, damages health, disrupts lives and deprives farmers of opportunities to make alternate gains on farm. Recognizing factors that drive the practice and demonstrating proven solutions is the way ahead. Delhi is considered one of the most polluted cities in the world. Air pollution is caused due to rising number of vehicles, industrial pollution, construction activities and reducing green cover not commensurate with rapid urbanization. Air quality worsens from mid-October to mid-November, often slipping from severe to hazardous category. A major reason ascribed to poor air quality is stubble burning in Punjab, Haryana and parts of UP.
