Development ignoring the environment where we are living will lead to such situations. One major issue we always forget is preserving trees and water bodies. Forest is something we are ignoring. Preserving forest is the most important thing which we should not forget. A forest not only clear the air, but also help water conservation. Every Indian must have this in mind, then we can bring down the atmospheric particulate matter.
This thread indicates a worsening of the situation, being in the top five most polluted countries is something that needs a drastic action.
The Government and we(the people) are also equally responsible to improve our environment (air,water and noise pollution) rapidly. Whatever the Government does, we should also be aware of the environment and the implications of our own greed that is destroying the green cover at an alarming rate.The programs for reducing air pollution should be implemented strictly with more stringent measures.
In my view, the biggest offenders are the lorries, public sector buses, factories, burning wood and post harvest stalks cultivation fields. If we can tackle this on a war footing, then we have some chance.
The main cause of concern is industrial one where many illegal manufacturing activities are rampantly followed to make finished goods from the old and used up toxic materials. The poor user is totally ignorant of these industrial poisons which are slowly and gradually entering our households in great proportions.
The way out seems to be very difficult, though not impossible, through the strict governance and tough regulations for punishing the errant persons and is the only hope in the dark of already polluted environment.

Even this challenging situation would ease
"Earning knowledge is by sharing it with ISC and we will rectify our mistakes."
If we follow simple things like this at all levels right from an individual to the entire Government in doing it's share we can make a difference.
