Air quality will be "bad" on Thursday, 8 November - a day after Diwali - even if "partial toxic crackers" are used as compared to previous year, SAFAR said.
The air quality will be bad on November 8 "even if 50% of the total load of toxic firecrackers as compared to Diwali-2017 is added". The PM2.5 (particles in the air with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometres) level was recorded at 243, while the PM10 was recorded at 372 in Delhi on Tuesday.
