According to a report by the System of Air Quality Weather Forecasting and Research, pollution levels across major cities dropped as people stayed indoors and practised social distancing to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus. According to the organisation, a 45% drop in the concentration of Nitrogen Oxide was observed this month compared to March 2018 and 2019. The report states that fossil fuel emission, mainly coming from vehicular traffic, is one of the major sources of Nitrogen Oxide and PM2.5 in Delhi, Mumbai, Pune and Ahmedabad.
