Gurgaon schools to remain closed on Monday due to air pollution, smog

All schools in the national capital will reopen today after a five-day break announced by the Delhi government in view of the alarming air pollution levels, an official said today.

According to the Central Pollution Control Board, the air quality index (AQI) as of 4 p.m. on Monday was 460, which was in the "severe" category.

"Schools will reopen tomorrow (Monday) and the break is not being further extended", a Delhi government official said. The apex court will hear a PIL on the matter.

Describing the prevailing situation as an emergency, a bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud insisted that there won't be any stay on matters pertaining to pollution which are going on before any other court.

Trump was apparently referring to Makan Delrahim , the chief of the Justice Department's antitrust division. AT&T shares rose 1.6 percent to $33.97.

Besides seeking directions to the Centre and the states concerned to take measures on curbing road dust and stubble burning, the fresh plea also sought effective implementation of the odd-even auto rationing scheme.

Meanwhile Aam Aadmi Party Government on Monday filed a review petition before the National Green Tribunal (NGT), requesting it to reconsider its objection to exclusion of women and two-wheelers in the Odd-Even scheme, following which the Government had cancelled its roll-out. The Haryana government on Tuesday changed school timings by an hour after reports of road accidents and increasing air pollution. As residents stepped out for their morning routines, they said even though the smog conditions were a little better, long-term solutions needed to be found out to curb pollution in Delhi.
