Mumbai AQI: Chronic Bad Air Spots Linked to Construction Dust

Mumbai's air quality index (AQI) woes can be primarily attributed to the presence of construction dust, according to recent studies. A substantial number of chronic bad air spots in the city have been identified as hotspots for this issue. Construction and infrastructure development often result in the release of particulate matter into the air, which significantly impacts the air quality. This is particularly concerning in densely populated cities like Mumbai. The AQI, a metric used to determine air quality levels, has persistently shown alarming figures for Mumbai. Experts have identified that construction dust contributes immensely to this ongoing problem. The presence of fine dust particles in the air can cause serious health issues, especially for vulnerable populations such as children, the elderly, and people with respiratory diseases. One of the major factors contributing to high AQI levels in Mumbai is the large number of ongoing construction projects throughout the city. Mumbai's real estate sector has been rapidly expanding, leading to an increase in construction activities.
