Mumbai: The new air monitoring stations are part of the comprehensive draft action plan made by MPCB for Mumbai to curb the city’s air pollution. As per directions of the Central Pollution Control Board, the MPCB is working on an action plan for the state which will be released in the next two months.
Dr Anbalagan said, “The pollutant levels in every area of the city will help determine the exact air quality for the whole city and suburban areas. We could also know the air quality patterns of each area and thus, could study sources of pollution in a more effective way.”
The MPCB has focused on decreasing vehicular and industrial emissions in the city along with improving conditions of roads in the draft action plan.
