After SC rap, efforts stepped up to control air pollution in Delhi

Since the Supreme Court started coming down heavily on the Delhi and the Central Governments over air pollution in the city in the first half of November, there has been a jump in actions in this regard, especially in the checks on polluting vehicles, data accessed by The Hindu shows.

From November 1 to 15, a total of 1,97,973 such inspections were done, while between November 26 and December 6, i.e. 11 days, 5,05,468 inspections were carried out.
