While only Delhi environment minister Imran Hussain showed up, the environment ministers of Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh reportedly skipped the meet and sent bureaucrats instead.

The overall air quality index (AQI) of Delhi was recorded at 366, as per CPCB's data. "Only then can we find a soln (sic)".

The meeting was called ahead of Diwali to discuss the plan for the next 10 days when the pollution level is expected to spike in the national capital due to localised reasons and regional factors like stubble burning.

Large scale studies have demonstrated that there is a correlation between poor air quality and lower IQ levels and that higher levels of nitrogen oxide-a particularly pernicious component of air pollution-can drive psychiatric disorders in children.

In a response to Supreme Court's observation regarding the setting up of social media accounts, the Central Pollution Control Board today said, "a social media account on Facebook & Twitter has been created to allow citizens to complaints about pollution & so far it has received 18 complaints".

There was significant representation from non-state actors working in India, who made their own commitments "I bring you greetings from the most polluted city in the world", Arvind Kumar, head of the Centre for Chest Surgery and Lung Transplantation at Ganga Ram Hospital, Delhi, and founder of Lung Care Foundation, said.

Mr Harsh Vardhan said that similar to past year this time, there will be a campaign for the same problem and around 70 teams will be in field to deal with the situation.

The DPCC has directed the transport department and traffic police to intensify checking of polluting vehicles and control travel congestion in Delhi and other NCR districts during November 1-10.

However, while many studies focus on the negative effects of air pollution, car, train and aircraft, noise also increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.

He said the researchers examined emergency room visits for asthma in about 54 countries and looked at global air pollution levels, which come from satellites, to help researchers estimate levels of air pollution concentration. "We will take them when needed".

From Thursday, many steps would be taken to check pollution in the region.

The PM2.5 was recorded at 235.

The First WHO Global Conference on Air Pollution and Health that ended in Geneva invited countries and partners to work together to fight air pollution and emphasised that without political interventional, making progress would be hard.

The PM2.5 (particles in the air with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometres) was recorded at 210 which falls under the "very poor" category.

As per the CPCB data, the PM10 level in Delhi stood at 368. However, in Pitampura, the air quality plunged to "severe or hazardous category" at 426 AQI.
