New Delhi:

People in Delhi woke up to thick blanket of smog spread all across the national capital on Wednesday. It has been witnessed after the Diwali festival.

As per the report, PM 2.5 levels on the day of Diwali (October 30) across each of the 11 pollution monitoring centres were anywhere between a staggering 4 times to 12 times of what they were the week before (October 24).

As Delhi recorded PM2.5 levels at nearly 21 times higher than permissible limit on Diwali, the Centre summoned governments of Punjab, Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh over enforcing ban on stubble burning.
