Sixteen out of 65 pollution hot spots in Delhi fixed: Govt

Around 25% of major pollution sources in Delhi's hot spots have been fixed this winter, with 43 others being monitored to prevent local pollution. A total of 49% of minor pollution sources have also been fixed. Each source has been uploaded to the government's app, "Green Delhi," and assigned to a department or agency for resolution. The aim is to fix all major sources by the end of winter. The Delhi Pollution Control Committee identified 13 pollution hot spots in 2018 based on annual PM 2.5 concentrations. Progress will be analyzed after February.
