“Union environment minister Prakash Javadekar’s recent remark as to why people aren’t referring to the national Air Quality Index (AQI) and instead depending on “one embassy’s” data had taken pollution experts by surprise. The fact is that the environment ministry’s pet project, AQI, is itself facing some serious quality issues. For instance, on Monday only two stations—RK Puram and Anand Vihar—were showing up-to-date AQI data, while others displayed old stats. Monitoring stations at Civil Lines and Shadipur were not showing PM 10 (coarse pollution particles) while the one at IGI Airport didn’t display PM 10 and carbon monoxide (CO) figures.” The Times of India.
