Earlier in the day, Kejriwal said that he has requested Sisodia "to consider closing schools for a few days considering high level of pollution". "Teachers of primary classes will utilise this time in academic work and planning", it added. "As per rules, even after air quality is deemed severe, there is another 48-hour period of observation".

That's not all. The EPCA has asked the Delhi government to start preparing for measures such as odd-even and ban on construction if pollution aggravates.

According to SAFAR's data, that predicts the air quality of Delhi-NCR to remain "severe" for the next two days as well, the PM2.5 ranged from 453 unit (minimum) at Pusa to 569 (maximum) at Lodhi road at 2 p.m.

Last year, the government had explored the possibility of cloud seeding for artificial rain to reduce suspended dust in the air - something which never worked out, explained officials.

Kejriwal has also sought an appointment with Union Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan to discuss the alarming situation, he said. Sisodia added, "We are working on the plan". It also announced that all measures under the GRAP's severe category will be implemented across the region till further notice.
