New Delhi: The Delhi government will conduct a round-the-year air quality study to ascertain sources of pollution in the city, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Wednesday.
He said sources of pollution are different according to the area and time.
The AAP dispensation has a plan to procure machines which can detect sources of pollution at any given time and the government would act accordingly, Kejriwal told a gathering on the third anniversary of the Delhi government.
Kejriwal said the Delhi chief secretary would submit a report on the proposed study and the plan to buy machines in a week.
"In view of various sources of pollution around the year, we will conduct a round-the-year study," he said.
The government will do landscaping work along 500 kilometres of roads to check dust pollution in the national capital, the chief minister said.
"Besides, we will carry out a tree plantation drive on a large scale to bring down pollution levels," he said.
Agencies which dig up roads for their work will have to repair them too, which will help bring down dust pollution in Delhi, Kejriwal said.
The CBDT also accused Sood of violating the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) while raising donations from abroad.
A real estate deal and some other financial transactions linked to Sood are under the scanner of the department, official sources had said
