13.05.2014 16:27

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recently released its 2014 version of the Ambient Air Pollution (AAP) database revealed that thirteen of the dirtiest 20 cities were Indian. Delhi tops the list followed by Patna, Gwalior and Raipur in second, third and fourth spot respectively.

Delhi’s air has PM2.5 concentrations of 153 micrograms and PM10 concentrations of 286 micrograms--much more than the permissible limits. The higher limit of particulate matters in the air poses risk of respiratory diseases and other health problems.
