Delhi faces cold night ahead

Delhi’s air quality remained ‘severe’ on Tuesday as Diwali fireworks reversed recent rain relief, causing a spike in pollution levels. The Air Quality Index (AQI) reached 417 in RK Puram, 430 in ITO, 428 in Janakpuri, and 410 in Punjabi Bagh on November 14. Despite this, Delhi experienced its coldest night of the season, with a minimum temperature of 11.8 degrees Celsius on Monday. India Meteorological Department officials suggest a further drop in temperature in the coming days as winter conditions set in, with a significant decrease expected by the last week of November. Meanwhile, the New Delhi Municipal Council has doubled parking charges to discourage private vehicle use amid high pollution levels.
