He also added that diesel generators will be not used for the coming 10 days except in emergency places like hospitals. Even the Badarpur Power Plant will be shut down for the next 10 days. From November 10 onwards, roads will be cleaned using vacuum. Jet sprinkling will be begun from Monday.

The CM urged people to stay in home by opting to work from home instead. The government is mulling to bring back the odd even formula system soon to curb the pollution levels in the nation’s capital. In addition to the Diwali celebrations, the crop burning in neighbouring states like Punjab and Haryana which the situation even more horrible and quality of air dipped to the worst.


Government will provide protective masks to CISF security personnel that watch the IGI airport. People are using air purifiers to save themselves from the worst pollution. Many companies that manufacture air purifiers said that an abrupt surge was seen in the products after Diwali.
