    The latest Air Quality Index reports show that certain areas in the national capital are still in the 'Hazardous' category. The AQI figures show that Mandir Marg is at 523, Anand Vihar at 510, Punjabi Bagh at 743, Shadipur at 420.

    Schools in Delhi today were reopened, after being closed due to severe smog conditions in the national capital. Students were wearing masks as teachers said that collective efforts must be made since closing schools is not a solution.

    Delhiites woke up to a slightly better day today even as air pollution remained 'severe'. As residents stepped out for their morning routines, they said even though the smog conditions were a little better, long-term solutions needed to be found out to curb pollution in Delhi.

    Meanwhile, the Indian Meteorological Department said that an acceleration in wind-speeds could result in rain and continue till Thursday.

    The rains will also bring a respite for the most vulnerable - lakhs of students who return to schools on Monday after a five-day break due to the pollution.
