| Saturday | 19th October, 2019
New Delhi: Delhiites breathed easy on Saturday as pollution levels in the national capital reduced significantly owing to gusty winds and rainfall in neighbouring areas.
The overall air quality index (AQI) fluctuated between 128 and 157, which falls in the moderate category, according to the Central Pollution Control Board's data.
Barring Dwarka Sector 8, where the air quality remained "poor" (238), most of the areas in the city recorded an AQI in the "moderate" category.
Quick deterioration of air quality to 'poor' and then to 'very poor' category is likely by October 22, it said.
SAFAR data showed the share of smoke from stubble burning in neighbouring states on Delhi's PM2.5 concentration was nil on Saturday.
