Delhi air pollution: Environment ministry forms high-level committee

In Delhi, pollutants touched calamitous levels as a thick grey smog hung low across the region over the past few days.

The environment ministry has set up a high-level committee to propose and monitor solutions to air pollution, which has risen to dangerous levels in and around Delhi, raising serious health concerns.

The ministry also asked affected state governments to implement the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) to battle pollution. The plan includes control of road and construction dust, garbage burning, power plant and industrial emissions and vehicular movement, an official statement said.
