Pune: The day after Laxmi Poojan (November 8) was even more toxic than the same day a year ago, an analysis of the air pollution during Diwali by System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR) at the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology here has shown. The Delhi AQI touched the maximum levels on Thursday morning.
Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh: The monitoring centre at Talkatora District Industrial Centre in the capital city of Uttar Pradesh recorded literally the worst air in India this morning with an Air Quality Index score of 430 - categorised as "Severe".
The US embassy air quality index is a combined measure of poisonous gases and fine airborne particles. The alarming statistics in the city points fingers at the air quality deteriorating and faring further below big metros during the Diwali fiesta this year.
In a gross violation of a Supreme Court order, people in several cities burst firecrackers throughout the day and this went on until at least midnight, against the apex court order of a two-hour time slot from 8pm to 10pm.
The order was flouted at many places in the two states as people started bursting crackers well before 8 pm and continued beyond 10 pm. Hadapsar and Manjari were the most polluted areas this Diwali. The top court also permitted the manufacture and sale of only "green crackers" which have a low emission of light, sound and harmful chemicals.
The police had been asked to ensure banned firecrackers were not sold. South Delhi resident Sagarika Sharma said she had lost her mother to lung cancer previous year.
A senior police official said the police received no clear-cut directions from the SC or the state government to take action against those bursting crackers beyond permissible limit.
The Delhi police said it registered around 562 cases under section 188 of the Indian Penal Code (disobedience of order) and arrested 310 people for violating the Supreme Court's order. Air pollution worsens in winter anyway, with the burning of crop residue in nearby rural areas, and the use of diesel generators among the factors at play.
The CPCB data says the 24-hour rolling average of PM2.5 and PM10 were 164 and 294 micrograms per cubic metre, respectively.

The situation was similar in Gurgaon, Noida and Ghaziabad, where crackers were burst as usual.
