Pune: Delhi might be paying the steepest price for its air pollution with life expectancy dropping by 6.4 years while Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra are likely to account for the highest number of premature deaths in India, a study by the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology has revealed.
Conducted by IITM scientists in collaboration with the National Centre for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), Colorado, the study is likely to further ignite concern over the need to improve air quality in the capital and urgently map its sources of pollution and their contribution to making Delhi an unhealthy city.
Living in the polluted environment is worse than dieing 6 years earlier. What kind of life is it if we can''t breathe fresh air and drink clean water?
Modi has taken so many innocent lives, what does 6.3 years matter in Delhi?
Every city have the same problem , these are not a place to live
It is a very serious survey report. Government and other environmental authorities should find a solutions as soon as possible. It is the people''s life.
