As per Delhi government, Air pollution caused by vehicular traffic has declined by 50 per cent in the national capital. The Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) collected samples from 18 locations across the city. “PM 2.5 air pollution levels on Saturday at 18 locations showed recordings of less than 100 micrograms per cubic metre at nine locations, which is more than 50 percent less than average recordings since the odd-even regulations were put in place for four-wheeled vehicles since January 1,”an official statement said.
Scientists have been consistently predicting that the moment weather conditions improve, the results of odd/even formula for four-wheeled vehicles will show immediate results.
