Delhi pollution: Delhi's air quality showed a slight improvement as it moved from 'severe' to the ‘very poor’ category on Saturday morning. The overall AQI recorded at 8 am stood at 364,  according to the System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research (SAFAR). 

As per the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) data, some of the areas in the national capital recorded AQI above 400. An AQI between 0 and 50 is considered good, 51 and 100 satisfactory, 101 and 200 moderate, 201 and 300 poor, 301 and 400 very poor, 401 and 450 severe, and above 450 severe-plus.

Notably, the air quality deteriorated two days after the Commission for Air Quality Management (CAQM) in Delhi on November 28 ordered the removal of GRAP Stage-III curbs in Delhi-NCR. The move paved the way for the removal of restrictions on the operation of BS III petrol and BS IV diesel four-wheelers in Delhi, Gurugram, Faridabad, Ghaziabad and Gautam Budh Nagar.
