This bar is cashing in on Delhi's severe air pollution
At a time when Delhiites are gasping for breath and Air Quality Index (AQI) is in the very 'severe' category, 'Oxy Pure' an oxygen bar in Saket is offering pure oxygen to its customers in seven different aromas (lemongrass, orange, cinnamon, spearmint, peppermint, eucalyptus, and lavender).
A customer said the bar will provide big relief to elders and children who are more susceptible to high level of air pollution.
First of its kind
The store operator claims that the oxygen bar is a first of its kind in Delhi.
"This is the first such store in Delhi. Currently, pollution levels are very high, our product helps in providing some relief. We get 10-15 customers a day. We are also offering portable oxygen cans to customers that they can carry anywhere they want," said Ajay Johnson, (in pic) store operator.
Asking for solutions
On the other hand, the Delhi High Court on Thursday pulled up the AAP-led Delhi government and other authorities over increasing air pollution levels in the city and suggested a clutch of measures to bring it down.
Leaning towards emergency zone
Delhi is battling with very poor air quality, which is hovering around the emergency zone. On Thursday morning the Air Quality Index (AQI) docked at 472 with particulate matter (PM) 2.5 levels at 322 and PM 10 levels at 487 at 8:30 in the morning, said System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research (SAFAR).
