Delhi is among the most polluted cities in the world. The year 2020 was an aberration with regard to air quality as the pandemic-induced lockdown provided much-needed respite, though temporarily.

     

Scientists come up with THIS solution to fight Delhi-NCR air pollution

WHAT?

Much ahead of the air pollution season in northwest India, especially in Delhi-NCR, scientists have come up with a Decision Support System (DSS) that will not just help zero in on the exact sources contributing to Delhi's pollution, but also predict practical scenarios in winters.

HOW?

The practical scenario prediction will include the level of pollution if a certain sector is shut down or sources from a certain area/district are controlled and this will help the government decide which sector to shut down or where to reduce activity in view of the prevailing air quality in Delhi.

This will help the authorities target the relevant sector or district for preventive action.
