Delhi University’s PGDAV (Evening) had approached the DPCC with a request to set up a station and now the construction work had started and was going on at a “great pace”. This will be the first college to get a fully automatic Air Quality Monitoring Station and it will cost about Rs 2 crore and is likely to start functioning by the second week of September.
The stations will provide real-time air quality data,” said by DPCC. “The station will monitor the air quality of Nehru Nagar, Maharani Bagh, Ashram, Srinivaspuri, Lajpat Nagar, etc. Since the area is also known for high traffic density and congestion, especially during peak hours, the station will certainly be helpful in assessing the air quality,” he said. “An LED-display board will be installed at the front fence of the college so that onlookers may notice the concentration of air pollutants. In future, the station will be a point of attraction for students, scientists, research scholars and interested citizens,” Gupta said.
