Green War Room

Making Delhi Green Again

Oct 05, 2023

India's capital, Delhi, is one of the world's most polluted cities. Residents of the city face a major health risk as a result of the city's frequent air pollution levels exceeding permissible limits. The Delhi government has established a 'Green War Room' to fight air pollution in order to address this issue.


A cutting-edge facility called the Green War Room will monitor air pollution levels in real-time and coordinate efforts to lower it. The facility will be furnished with the most recent technology, including meteorological information, satellite imaging, and air quality sensors. Additionally, a group of specialists will analyse the data and suggest ways to cut air pollution.


The Green War Room will now operate 24*7  and will be able to track information on how much pollution is present in which Delhi neighbourhoods. Additionally, it will coordinate the operations of other government organisations, such as the Municipal Corporation of Delhi, the Delhi Traffic Police, and the Delhi Pollution Control Committee. Additionally, it will collaborate with NGOs and other parties to create and carry out a comprehensive air pollution management strategy.
