Delhi's 'Green War Room' to Operate Round the Clock Starting Tuesday

New Delhi - According to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, specific and individualized action plans have been devised for each of the 13 air pollution hotspots in Delhi.

The 'Green War Room,' the Delhi government's central hub for monitoring air pollution and addressing complaints, will soon operate 24/7, starting on October 3.

Officials mentioned that this facility, established in 2020, is equipped with advanced air quality monitoring tools and staffed by a team of experts, including scientists and data analysts. This team vigilantly tracks all pollution sources contributing to Delhi's air quality issues and assists the city administration in executing its action plan.

An official stated, "While the Green War Room operates year-round, continuous 24/7 monitoring will commence from Tuesday," as reported by PTI.

In a recent press briefing, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal unveiled a 15-point action plan aimed at mitigating air pollution in Delhi during the winter season. The plan places significant emphasis on addressing dust pollution, vehicle emissions, and open garbage burning.

Kejriwal explained that for each of Delhi's 13 air pollution hotspots, distinct and tailored action plans have been developed. These plans are based on real-time data collected from 40 air quality monitoring stations across the city.

The winter action plan's key objectives include preventing crop residue burning, controlling dust pollution, reducing vehicular and industrial emissions, curbing open garbage burning, regulating firecrackers, promoting tree planting, ensuring the effective implementation of the Graded Response Action Plan, managing electronic waste, and fostering cooperation with neighboring states.

Delhi's Environment Minister, Gopal Rai, had previously issued a stern warning against large construction and demolition sites that disregard dust control regulations.

Furthermore, Minister Gopal Rai announced a comprehensive ban on the manufacture, storage, sale, and use of firecrackers within the city, continuing the prohibition from the previous year.
