In view of the rapidly increasing cold and weather conditions in Delhi, a central government panel has decided to close all schools and universities in NCR. All schools and universities will remain closed until further orders. There will be online classes only starting on Wednesday.

In order to control the severity of the pollution in Delhi NCR, the Commission for Air Quality Management (CAQM) has ordered the closure of all public and private schools, colleges and educational institutions until further orders.


The CAQM has advised the NCR state governments (Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh) to allow at least 50 percent of the workforce to work from home (WFH) by November 21. The commission says that private companies in Delhi NCR should also be encouraged to work from home with at least 50 percent of staff.

The entry of all trucks, except those carrying basic goods, has been banned from Delhi until November 21. CAQM ordered the closure of all construction activities at NCR until November 21, except railways, metro, airport and projects related to national security / defense.

Despite all efforts to improve the climate of Delhi-NCR, the air in Delhi remains at a very poor level. The AQI of the Anand Vihar area of ​​Delhi was recorded at 433 on Tuesday morning, which is at a critical level. 411 AQI was registered in the Ashok Vihar area, which is at a critical level.

It is of concern that the AQI of many areas of Delhi has crossed 400. At the same time, in some areas more than 300 have been recorded. SAFAR forecasts that due to the change in wind speed, the level of pollution may increase in the next two days.

On the other hand, NCR’s Ghaziabad air remains at a very poor level. The AQI here was recorded as 335. Gurugram’s climate also remains in the very poor category. AQI 332 was registered. The air in Greater Noida is also very bad. The AQI was recorded as 317.

Out of 27 highly polluted cities in 22 Delhi-NCR, the level of pollution has dropped due to the change in weather conditions. On Monday, the quality of no city in the country was 400 or more. Very low air levels were recorded in some 27 cities.

Surprisingly, only five of these cities were outside of the NCR. The rest of 22 cities were from NCR. Quality from Meerut in Uttar Pradesh to Jind in Haryana was recorded in this category. At the same time, Delhi remained the most polluted city in the country. The air quality index for the capital was recorded at 353.

The Delhi air, which has been running in the very poor category for the past two days, fell to the severe category on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Delhi has been the third most polluted city in the country on the list of 141 cities. In first place, Haryana’s Jind ranked second with 428 and Manesar with 410 AQI.
