Bengaluru: According to a report published by Greenpeace, an independent environmental advocacy organisation, pollution levels in Bengaluru are higher than WHO standards.

The report stated that pollution in India, which has traditionally been linked with the northern regions, is no longer a regional issue.

“India’s report Airpocalypse IV highlighted that more than 80% of cities/towns had PM10 levels exceeding the 60µg/m3 limits for PM10 prescribed under National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) by CPCB (Central Pollution Control Board).”

The report, titled “Are cities in South India breathing safe air?” evaluates the average PM 2.5 and PM 10 levels in all the major locations in Bengaluru City. The data was gathered from ten air quality monitoring stations located across the Karnataka capital.
