Gurgaon Pollution

I went to 'gurgaon' in december. The connectivity with delhi is very poor.

You need to wait in hell 'ouside ISBT ND' for 30 mins to 1 Hr. and then you wont find a seat in bus and go standing for over an hour. There is a beautiful view of NDelhi airport. And labourers are smoking cheap tobacoo bidis in bus.

I fell sick, my lungs blocked, for a week after i came from Gurgaon. it was so polluted even in December.

Gurgaon’s air highest on nitrogen oxide levelsMaruti, DLF issued notices for emitting pollutantsAditi TandonTribune News Service

Chandigarh, March 19 Almost all major developers and commercial giants in Gurgaon are in the dock for contributing to the fast rising nitrogen oxide levels in its air. In a recent crackdown on industrial and commercial set-ups using massive generator sets to meet power demands, the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has found the level of nitrogen oxides in Gurgaon’s air to be three times the national average.
This makes Gurgaon the most polluted Indian city in terms of nitrogen oxide content in the air. In extreme conditions, NO2 (nitrogen oxide) can lead to cancer of the lungs. It also works as a secondary pollutant and teams up with other pollutants to form ozone.
