Delhi bans manufacturing in industrial areas; hi-tech firms allowed

Nov 02, 2020 20:49 IST

With Delhi's air quality remaining in 'very poor' category, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday announced further measures. The Delhi govt has imposed a ban on manufacturing activity in new industrial areas of the national capital, allowing only hi-tech and services industries to be operational. The move is aimed at curbing release of pollutants in the air, at a time when a spurt in stubble burnings in neighbouring states has already worsened Delhi's air quality index. Stubble burning contributed to 40% of Delhi's total air pollution on Sunday, as per latest reports.
