New Delhi: The national capital woke up this morning to a blanket of thick haze with pollution levels breaching the permissible standards by several notches.

The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) recorded ‘severe’ air quality, meaning that the intensity of pollution was extreme. According to the CPCB, moisture in the air coupled with a complete absence of wind led to this situation. “Total calm conditions, marked by the complete absence of wind has led to the situation. The moisture has trapped emissions from ground level sources,” Dipankar Saha, CPCB’s air lab chief, told PTI.

The runway at Indira Gandhi International Airport has been closed. Over 20 flights have been delayed so far. Rail traffic too has been affected, with at least 12 trains delayed due to decreased visibility, reported ANI.
