2023 • 10min • News • National


Published On: November 10, 2023 - Several parts of Delhi-NCR received light rainfall on the intervening night of Thursday and Friday, bringing a much-needed respite from the increased air pollution in the national capital. Yet the national capital's AQI stood at 407 at 6 am on Friday, as per the data by the System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research. These showers in several places will reduce the amount of suspended particulate matter in air, that is PM 2.5 and PM 10, and hence will improve air quality.
