Action Taken Report (ATR) APP

Residue burning is a major issue in the state of Punjab in India, burning residue from the annual paddy and wheat harvest is a practice that dates back to decades. Crop waste burning emits particulate matter (both PM10 and PM2.5) and green house gases (GHG), which aggravate the poor air quality in Punjab, Haryana and the National Capital Region (NCR).
