Hyderabad: Air pollution saw a major increase in the city with particulate matter 2.5 levels recording 94 ug/m3 in the city areas. The real time monitoring stations have shown a bad quality of air from afternoon to evening. The instantaneous recording showed the levels peak from 81 ug/m3 to 115 ug/m3 till late evening. 

The bad quality of air is being attributed to heavy vehicular pollution along with the burning of firewood to beat the cold weather at night. There have also been complaints to the pollution control board of burning of garbage at various places which they state is also one of the reasons for the bad quality of air. 

 

With the temperatures falling at night, the dispersal of particulate matter in the air is not fast and most of the matter is static at one place in the air. This is found to be the reason for the high levels. 

The officials state that the vehicles have been kept at locations like Sanath Nagar, Zoo Park, cross junctions connecting to highways to understand the quality of air. 

The industrial zones are also covered and those levels help them to intervene with the industry. The present high levels, state officials is mainly due to the movement of vehicles.
