Report on Assessment of Industrial Air Pollution in Delhi-NCR

June 01, 2020

A scoping study on industrial air pollution has been conducted in districts and regions with prominent industrial clusters in Delhi-NCR, covering states of Rajasthan, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh—Alwar, Bhiwadi, Gurugram, Faridabad, Panipat, Sonipat and Ghaziabad—to identify pollution hotspots and major air polluting sectors. This study will assist relevant stakeholders in preparing and implementing an effective action plan to control air pollution from the concerned industrial areas/sectors.

The Air Quality Index (AQI) data and the Comprehensive Environmental Pollution Index (CEPI) scores for these districts clearly portray the concerning levels of environmental quality in these areas (see Table 1: Details of area, population, AQI and CEPI score of the study areas). AQI is an index for reporting the quality of air in an area whereas CEPI is a nationwide score developed by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) which captures the various dimensions (air, water, and land) of environmental quality of a given location.
