The air quality is better due to the rain in the capital for the last three days. However, experts claim that the health of the air will start deteriorating once the rains stop. The Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) for pollution control will be implemented from October 1. This time new measures for pollution control will be included by including many points in the graph.
A Delhi government official said that the GRAP rule has been prepared for pollution control in the capital. However, this time some new points have been included in it. Under this, new measures are being included, so that pollution control can be done. With its implementation, the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) will also be responsible. Along with this, pollution control can also be monitored from the Green War Room. As the level of PM 2.5 and PM 10 in the graph increases, the strictness will go on increasing.
These restrictions will remain
GRAP’s rule will be implemented from October 1 to control pollution in the capital. With the implementation of the rule, dust flying on the roads will be controlled. Also, burning of garbage or dumping of debris in the open can be banned. Mechanical sweeping machines can be employed to stop the dust blowing from the roads. Also, rules like banning diesel generators except in emergency hospitals can be adopted. At the same time, if the amount of pollution reaches the very poor category, the use of coal and wood in hotels and dhabas can be banned. Construction work may come to a halt when air health reaches the critical category.

To control dust pollution, 11 anti smog guns were deployed by the corporation. By marking 13 hotspot areas of pollution in Delhi, water sprinkler machines have been instructed to sprinkle water twice a day. Anti-smog guns have been installed by declaring the three landfill sites and the area around it as pollution hotspots. The Municipal Corporation of Delhi has sanctioned two at Bhalswa landfill site, three at Ranikheda, one at Burari and Jahangir Puri C&D plants, one at Okhla landfill site, one at Bakkarwala C&D disposal plant, one at Ghazipur landfill site, one at Shastri Nagar.
