A status assessment of National Air Quality Index (NAQI) and pollution level assessment for Indian cities

A ranking of the 17 cities covered by the National Air Quality Index (NAQI) was released by Greenpeace India, and reveals data to challenge the complacence of the Central and State Governments regarding cities other than Delhi: as many as fifteen of the 17 Indian cities with NAQI stations showed levels of air pollution that far exceed the prescribed Indian standards. Indeed, the shockingly high pollution figures recorded for well over 50% of the times that data was recorded between April and November indicate the continuing severity of the Air Pollution disaster.
