Delhi ready to impose a lockdown. Govt to SC


The Delhi government on November 15 told the Supreme Court it was ready to impose a lockdown in the national capital to combat air pollution but for it to be effective, the neighbouring states, too, should impose similar restrictions.

In the last few days, Delhi has been seen its air quality dip to dangerous levels, forcing the closure of schools and a ban on construction activity.

Submitting a lockdown proposal to the country’s top court, the Delhi government said it was all for a complete shutdown but restrictions should also be implemented across the National Capital Region (NCR) for it to be meaningful.

The air quality index (AQI) of Delhi was at 391 at 11 am on November 15, falling into “very poor” category.

An AQI between zero and 50 is considered “good”, 51 and 100 “satisfactory”, 101 and 200 “moderate”, 201 and 300 “poor”, 301 and 400 “very poor” and 401 and 500 “severe”.
