Delhiites wake up to smoggy morning as air quality continues to deteriorate
Delhi's air quality slipped into the very poor category of Wednesday due to calm winds as most of the residents woke up to thick smog. The Air Quality Index (AQI) stood at 328 which falls in 'very poor' category.

The Supreme Court-mandated anti-pollution authority, EPCA, had asked Delhi and NCR states on Monday to step up surveillance and enforcement to check local sources of pollution and crop burning in view of the predicted dip in air quality.
