NCR’s annual battle for clear skies begins

Why in News ?                                                                           

In neighbouring Gurugram, anti­smog guns at construction sites, a dedicated air monitoring cell, and night patrolling are some of the new initiatives taken by the Gurugram pollution control board to tackle the rising levels of pollution.

What is it?

  • Anti-smog gun is a device that sprays nebulised water droplets into the atmosphere to reduce air pollution.
  • Connected to a water tank and mounted on a vehicle, the device could be taken across the city to spray water to settle dust and other suspended particles.
  • It can spray water up to a height of 50 metres and the results were positive as the spray acts like rain and settles dust particles and also PM 2.5.
