GRAP Stage 4: GRAP Stage IV imposed in Delhi as pollution worsens: Check if your car is allowed to run

The Commission for Air Quality Management (CAQM) in Delhi NCR and adjoining areas had issued statutory direction last month for implementation of the revised schedule of the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) as and when orders under GRAP were to be invoked. With no respite in air quality in the capital in the recent days, CAQM has now implemented GRAP Stage IVto tackle ‘Severe+ Air Quality’ i.e.AQI >450.
The CAQM sub-committee observed that the average AQI in Delhi was recorded as 415 on November 4, while on November 5 at around 02:00 PM it rose to 461. By 4 PM, the average AQI for Delhi stood at 454. Keeping in view the prevailing trend of poor air quality and pollution in Delhi, in an effort to prevent further deterioration of the AQI, the sub-committee has announced the implementation of Stage IV of GRAP with immediate effect, in addition to the stage I, II and III actions already in force.
