NGT bans burning of waste in open to reduce control air pollution

the National Green Tribunal imposed a complete ban on burning of waste in open including garbage, leaves, waste, rubber plastic and crop residues or any such other materials in open areas for any part of NCR-Delhi,"
NGT also said violators will be fined Rs 5,000

Reason to ban burning of all types of garbage, leaves, plastic and crop residues –

Burning of garbage and other materials is not only source of air pollution but forms 29.4 per cent of air pollution with reference to PM10.
PM or Particulate matter refers to all solid and liquid particles suspended in air many of which are hazardous.

Burning of material also causes serious respiratory problems and are even carcinogenic

There are three primary sources causing serious air pollution in NCR Delhi
2-burning of plastic
3-other materials including leaves in the open area and vehicular pollution

All these three sources lead to a common evil of air pollution by introducing high particulate matters, hydrocarbon, oxides of sulphur and nitrogen, benzene and ozone in the air. All these pollutants are responsible for causing health hazards
