<p>“Primary schools in Delhi will remain closed till November 10th as pollution levels continue to remain high,” Atishi said in a post on X.</p>
<p>“Schools are being given the option to shift to an online mode for Grades 6-12,” she said.</p>
<p>Earlier on November 2, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that all public and private schools in the nation’s capital will be closed for two days, till November 4, after the city’s pollution levels reaching the “severe” category.</p>
<p>According to the System of Air Quality Forecasting and Research (SAFAR-India), Delhi’s air quality remained in the “severe” category on Sunday for the fourth day in a row, despite a slight decrease in the overall Air Quality Index (AQI), which was measured at 410 on Sunday as opposed to 504 on Saturday.</p>
<p>An AQI of 0–50 is regarded as “good,” 51–100 as “satisfactory,” 101–200 as “moderate,” 201–300 as “poor,” 301–400 as “very poor,” and 401–500 as “severe.”</p>
<p>SAFAR-India data indicates that the Delhi University region has 456 (severe) air quality, whereas the Lodhi Road neighborhood has 385 (extremely bad) air quality.</p>
<p>According to SAFAR-India, Noida’s air quality dropped to the “severe” category, with an AQI of 466. Gurugram’s air quality was classified as “very poor” with an AQI of 392.</p>
<p>In a letter, Delhi Environment Minister Gopal Rai asked Union Minister Bhupender Yadav to ban cars from neighboring states in the Delhi-NCR from entering Delhi that do not comply with BS-VI standards.</p>
<p>He also asked the environment ministers of the neighboring nations to convene in an emergency.</p>
<p>The Chief Secretaries of the impacted states have also been asked to respond by the National Green Tribunal (NGT), which has instructed them to take prompt corrective measures and provide a report on their actions to the tribunal.</p>
<p>In a statement, the NGT said that in order to guarantee improved air quality for the locals, prompt action is needed for the prevention and control of air pollution in these cities.</p>
<p>The Commission for Air Quality Management (CAQM) on Thursday issued instructions to immediately prohibit building operations in the whole National Capital Region (NCR), with the exception of vital government projects, as the air quality in the nation’s capital dropped into the “severe” category.</p>
<p>The CAQM also recommended that the state governments of the NCR and GNCTD consider offering lessons online instead of in person for students up to Class V.</p>
<p>As the city’s air quality deteriorated, the CAQM activated the third stage of the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP). With the exception of necessary government projects, mining, and stone crushing, all construction and demolition work was completely suspended. Strict regulations were placed on the use of BS III gasoline and BS IV diesel LMVs (four-wheelers) in Delhi, as well as in the districts of Gurugram, Faridabad, Ghaziabad, and Gautam Budh Nagar.</p>
