Navi Mumbai air pollution increasing, next to Mumbai

Navi Mumbai / Mumbai:  On Tuesday, the air in Mumbai stooped to a low, or very poor reading, raising concerns among concerned authorities, who are now gearing up to take progressive action.

Apparently, the System of Air Quality Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR) recorded PM10 (particulate matter of 10 microns and less) level of 344 in Bandra-Kurla Complex and surprisingly, 300 in Navi Mumbai, the much greener city.

The Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) has called up all the stakeholders on Wednesday to discuss the proper implementation and monitoring of ambient air quality in the city.

Ever since the Centre had mandated implementation of dust mitigation measures in the Environment Protection Act to tackle air pollution, the MPCB had directed 17 cities in the state, including Mumbai, to abide.
