Chandigarh’s AQI crosses 400 on Lohri night

At 430, the average AQI at 9 pm was worst at the Continuous Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Station (CAAQMS) in Sector 53, Chandigarh, followed by 423 at the Sector 22 CAAQMS, both in the “severe” category

Chandigarh’s AQI is usually far better than Delhi. On Saturday, however, the most crowded places in Delhi, including Punjabi Bagh was in close range with an average AQI of 477. Dwarka had an index of 469 and Okhla 464. Chandigarh’s air quality was, in fact, worse than some stations in Delhi like Lodhi Road, where AQI was 414, and Jawaharlal Nehru stadium, where AQI was 428.
