India’s top court seeks report from govt air quality panel on pollution

India’s top court has asked for a report from the federal government’s Commission for Air Quality Management (CAQM) regarding measures being taken to combat air pollution in Delhi and its surrounding areas. The court’s decision comes after senior advocate Aparajita Singh, who is assisting the Supreme Court in this matter, raised concerns about air pollution during winters and farm fires. The court has called for an urgent report from CAQM on the steps being implemented to control air pollution in and around the capital city. The matter will be further discussed on October 31. Recent deterioration in Delhi’s air quality has been linked to the burning of paddy straw in Punjab and Haryana. Delhi is known as one of the most polluted cities globally, with industrial activities, traffic, and construction being major contributors to air pollution.
