New Delhi: The Delhi government will conduct a round-the-year air quality study to ascertain sources of pollution in the city, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said today. He said sources of pollution are different according to the area and time.

The Aam Aadmi Party dispensation has a plan to procure machines which can detect sources of pollution at any given time and the government would act accordingly, Kejriwal told a gathering on the third anniversary of the Delhi government.

Mr Kejriwal said the Delhi Chief Secretary would submit a report on the proposed study and the plan to buy machines in a week.

In view of various sources of pollution around the year, we will conduct a round-the-year study, said Chief Minister Kejriwal.

The government will do landscaping work along 500 km of roads to check dust pollution in the national capital, the CM said.

Agencies which dig up roads for their work will have repair them too, which will help bring down dust pollution in Delhi, Mr Kejriwal said.
