Some parts of the region still continues to fall under very unhealthy category of the Air Quality Index.

The menace also forced authorities to take emergency measures such as banning construction activities and brick kilns in the National Capital Region.

The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) on Friday released the new air quality index (AQI) data of Delhi-NCR with prominent pollutants PM 2.5 and PM 10 in 'very poor' category.

In the national capital, the content of particulate matter, PM 2.5, in the air has been quite high, often crossing 500, while the safety limit is 50.
