The Delhi government has decided to resume physical classes in schools, colleges and other educational institutions and to reopen government offices from November 29 in view of an “improvement” in air quality. The ban on the entry of trucks, except those dedicated to essential services, will continue until December 3.

Delhi’s Environment Minister Gopal Rai urged government personnel to use public transport. “We hired private CNG buses recently. We have decided to use them to transport employees from colonias like Gulabi Bagh and Nimri Colony. Most of the government employees live in these areas,” he said.
Air quality in the national capital continues in the ‘very bad’ category with the AQI dialing 390 at 9:00 am on Thursday, data from the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) showed. Neighbors Faridabad (394), Ghaziabad (362), Gurugram (322) and Noida (330) also recorded air quality in the “very poor” category.
