It has been over nine months since Greenpeace India’s open letter to the Central Pollution Control Board seeking an urgent revision of India’s Air Quality Standards. Despite the demand having been backed by over 10,000 concerned citizens, there has neither been a response nor an update of any kind on the same. We write to you again, to remind you that the revision of our National Ambient Air Quality Standards(NAAQS) according to the updated World Health Organization (WHO) standards (2022) is critical in the fight against air pollution and is long overdue.

Read Greenpeace India’s key recommendations to the Central Pollution Control Board to help control and mitigate the effects of air pollution in the country.
