The air quality in Delhi remained poor on Sunday with a drop in wind speed. Authorities predicted further fall in the air quality index of the national capital in the coming days.

The overall air quality index (AQI) recorded at 10 am today was 201 which falls in the poor category, according to Centre-run System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR).

Delhi’s neighbouring regions of Faridabad and Gurgaon also recorded poor air quality.

The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) said an emergency action plan will be implemented from tomorrow to combat air pollution that includes restrictions based on the air quality of the city.

It said, a slew of measures are being taken to fight pollution during the upcoming winter season.

Burning of paddy straw every year during October and November, in Punjab and Haryana are the major contributors of air pollution in Delhi-NCR, as the smoke travels towards the national capital. In Delhi, it mixes with fog and creates a toxic smoggy winter every year.
