Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad Records Spike In Air Pollution

Share This News

Air pollution levels have increased in 13 out of 15 monitoring stations in Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad over the last two days. The air quality index (AQI) has now crossed the moderate level of 100. Many residents have reported foggy conditions, especially in the mornings, along with eye irritation and breathing difficulties. Currently, Pashan has the cleanest air, while Hadapsar, Kothrud, Shivajinagar, Bhosari, and Thergaon are expected to experience further deterioration in the next 24 hours.

 According to Experts, the situation is a combination of factors. Clear skies with increased wind flow and moisture are trapping pollutants in the atmosphere, creating a haze and smog-like condition. Furthermore, anti-cyclonic winds from peninsular India are carrying moisture, further contributing to the problem. Some residents, such as Bhagyashree Suryavanshi and Narayan Rao, both residents of Hadapsar, have expressed concern about the worsening air quality and its impact on their health. Open garbage burning in some areas is adding to the problem.

Although temperatures are predicted to remain stable for the next 48 hours, there is currently no immediate relief in sight for Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad residents. This highlights the need for stricter measures to control air pollution in these cities.
