Delhi pollution has been at its absolute worst since Diwali, and it was high time that strict measures were taken. Many anti-pollution laws have been introduced by the Delhi government to curb pollution, and so around 99,000 challans *woah* have been already issued for the violation of these laws! Read on to know more about it.

Be A Part Of The Solution, Not Pollution | Dumping of construction waste, burning of garbage, construction activities - all of it is banned due to the high levels of AQI in the city. Since 16th October, the municipal corporation has lifted over 29,044 metric tonnes of waste & violators have deposited around Rs 57 lakh already. 

Diesel generator sets are banned till 15th March, 2020 & 319 industrial units will remain shut till 8th November. For the clustered industrial areas like Okhla, Wazirpur & Mayapuri, intensified actions will be implemented. Around 41 industrial units were under the red & orange category, and they were all closed down. Sprinklers have been stationed around the city to settle pollutants & dust.

So Delhiizens, do your bit and let’s fight against pollution together!
