State of ambient air quality of Uttar Pradesh cities

Being the most populous state in India, Uttar Pradesh has been facing air pollution challenges for several decades. The state has witnessed a progressive degradation in air quality over the last three decades due to fast-paced development, majorly in terms of the growing vehicular population, congestion, refuse burning and inefficient energy usage. To improve the state of air quality, it is imperative to monitor, communicate and expand the access to air-quality data. This report aims to assess and communicate the status and recent trend of air quality of Uttar Pradesh. It provides an updated monsoon (1st August – 30th September, 2016) report on air quality (PM2.5 and PM10) based on the data acquired from its installed monitoring stations.
