The visuals from the Kartavya Path and the Delhi-Noida border showed light to moderate-intensity rain showers.
The rainfall in the national capital comes amid the Delhi government’s ongoing efforts to implement the idea of ‘artificial rain’ to curtail the pollution situation in the city.
“Weather is better today after the rain. Earlier there was smog everywhere, but today it is good. Elderly people must take care of themselves and come out of the house with masks,” said a local resident.
However, according to Air Quality Early Warning System for Delhi, AQI may be ‘very poor’ on Saturday and Sunday.
Meanwhile, the Delhi government has also fielded ministers to ensure the implementation of anti-pollution measures.
Currently, Stage IV of the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) has been implemented in the national capital after the city’s air quality plummeted to the ‘severe plus’ category.
