Air quality in Delhi-NCR sees marginal improvement: SAFAR
The permissible limit for PM2.5 and PM10 is 60 and 80 units by national standards and 25 and 50 units by international standards.
According to the System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research (SAFAR), winds from eastern directions helped with dispersion of the particle pollutants keeping the AQI in 'very poor' category. However, pollution would go up Monday onwards, it said.
SAFAR has advised people to avoid all outdoor physical activities. Those with asthma must keep relief medication handy.
