Each publishes the figures directly.The government said late on Tuesday that the data should be sent to the Central Pollution Control Board for analysis before release in order to provide “authentic air quality information to people of Delhi”. It did not give a reason for the move, but several environmental campaigners expressed concerns that the new system, which comes into effect in the next two weeks, was a way for the government to bury bad news.” The Guardian.
