The National Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi has seen rapid growth in its industrial, transportation, and housing sectors over the past decades. The population of Delhi has increased from 1.378 crore in 2001 to 1.678 crore in 2011, a decadal growth of 21.2% against a national growth rate of 17.7%. This rapid growth in population, along with the increased rate of industrialization and urbanization and the rise in motorized transport, have resulted in an increased concentration of various air pollutants such as nitrogen oxides, sulphur dioxide, suspended particulate matter, respirable suspended particulate matter, carbon monoxide, ozone, lead, benzene, hydrocarbons, etc. With rising concerns about the steep increase in air pollution in the National Capital Territory of Delhi, several factors particularly motorized transportation, construction, and stubble burning in neighboring states are being identified as contributing to this hazard.
