Gurugram, November 27

Gurugram air slipped to ‘very poor’ category yet again as the Air Quality Index (AQI) reached 362. The dipping temperature added to the woes. For the prevention of pollution, the Graded Response Action Plan was implemented in the city from October 15.

In all, 41 officials of different departments were given the responsibility, but despite all the efforts, the air of the city is getting polluted.

The AQI of Gurugram was recorded at 362 on Saturday whereas on Friday, it was 379. Manesar’s AQI stood at 354 on Saturday while it was 346 on Friday.

The sky was smoggy on Saturday morning due to which people could not see sunlight in many areas. By 9 in the morning, the AQI of Gurugram had crossed 350. On Saturday, the most toxic air was in the area around Vikas Sadan.

Despite being a weekend, the air quality did not improve. People remained confined to their homes to avoid the toxic environment and there was little movement in city parks and malls.
