The light rain in the Delhi NCR (National Capital Region) has cleared the sky and brought pleasant weather. This has resulted in a reduction in pollution levels in the region.

However, on Wednesday, there has been an improvement of around 80 points compared to the previous two days, providing relief to the residents. Let’s explore the current AQI status in Delhi.

What is today’s AQI? On Wednesday, Delhi is experiencing dense fog, and the AQI for the capital has been recorded at approximately 318. Although there has been an improvement of 80 points in the AQI over the last two days, the pollution level still remains in the very poor category.

Restrictions lifted on Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) Phase 3 Considering the reduced pollution levels, the Delhi air quality management commission has lifted restrictions imposed under Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) Phase 3. This means that restrictions on construction activities and the operation of brick kilns and stone crushers will be lifted. Additionally, the ban on entry of BS-3 and BS-4 petrol vehicles and two-wheelers with lightweight engines into Delhi will also be lifted.
