Delhis air quality improves significantly after rain

NEW DELHI: Delhi's air quality significantly improved on Thursday after rainfall managed to wash away pollutants but authorities warned that the respite would not last long due to unfavourable weather. The city's air quality index or AQI dropped to 208 from over 400 in the last three days, according Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) data.

The respite comes after Delhi's air quality battled severe pollution for three consecutive days from Monday but last night's rainfall with moderate winds managed to wash away the pollutants significantly, the Centre-run System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting (SAFAR) said.
