India is devoted to a clean environment with clean air and water. Indian constitution also supports environmental protection. India's commitments and obligations to environmental conservation and protection within the scope of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are manifested in the fact that several administrative and regulatory measures, including a separate statute on air and water pollution, have been enacted. However, with its expanding population and pervasive poverty, India has great problems in reaching its several other key goals related to poverty and hunger elimination. For the past three decades, India has experienced a surge in industrial activity. The concurrent expansion in industrialization and urbanisation has resulted in a significant increase in environmental challenges, particularly air pollution. Delhi the capital city of the country is also facing the problem of Air pollution due to poor infrastructure, extreme urbanisation, dust, industrial pollutants, vehicle emissions, landfills, and open burning. This paper discusses the causes and consequences of air pollution, as well as the actions taken by the Delhi government to address this issue.
