Delhi residents look forward to a unique time of year when the skies become stunningly blue throughout the day and the evenings have a faint chill, signalling the change from the hot summer to the cold winter. This time is treasured before Delhi enters its notorious winter, which is known for its hazardous air and is sometimes referred to as the “gas chamber.” However, as recent images of stubble burning in the nearby Punjab reveal, this beloved season is under danger.
Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, is getting ready to introduce an action plan to battle air pollution during the impending winter. Building on last year’s initiatives, this strategy, which is scheduled to be announced on September 29, will target a variety of pollution sources, including stubble burning, dust pollution, car emissions, open waste burning, and industrial pollution.
Anand Vihar, Wazirabad, Vivek Vihar, Wazirpur, Ashok Vihar, Dwarka, Jahangirpuri, Rohini, Bawana, Narela, Mundka, Punjabi Bagh, RK Puram, and Okhla Phase 2 are some of the hotspots for pollution in Delhi. In order to address each of these regions’ distinct pollution concerns, tailored measures will be put into place.Considering that 7.3 million tonnes of paddy straw are expected to be produced this year across 14.82 lakh hectares of land, Haryana has set an ambitious objective to almost completely abolish stubble burning this year. To manage paddy fields, the state intends to deploy the Pusa Bio Decomposer, a microbial solution that decomposes straw in 15 to 20 days.
