Delhi Construction Ban: Re-construction and demolition activities have been banned due to poor air quality in Delhi. The Air Quality Management Commission has taken this decision on Sunday (December 4) after the AQI went into the severe category.
Earlier last month too, the Centre’s air quality panel had directed authorities to ban all construction and demolition activities in Delhi-NCR, except for essential projects. Later that ban was lifted when the AQI improved. However, now once again in view of the deteriorating air quality, this ban has been implemented. The AQI was measured at 400 on Sunday, which was worse than the AQI recorded on Saturday.
