air quality in India is bad and is becoming a serious public health issue with serious repercussions on the quality of life and the economy.
The database shows that air pollution is a global problem nine out of ten people breathe highly polluted air and about 80% of the people living in cities have to breathe in poor air that exceeds health standards.
Unlike China, governing air pollution has proved to be much more difficult in India with multiple layers of government and differences between the state and the central government. In India, there is a gap in air pollution policy that restricts its implementation. Moreover, outrage over deteriorating air quality has been restricted.
