Mahrashtra Pollution Control Board’s real-time data for pollution goes live

After a delay of more than six months and following criticism from anti-air pollution activists, the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board’s (MPCB) real-time air quality monitoring system for the city went live on its website on Saturday.

Air quality information from 13 stations – Vile Parle, Kandivli, Sion, Kurla, Borivli, Worli, Mulund, Powai, Colaba, Nerul, Kalyan, Vasai-Virar, and Mahape – is available with real-time updates on pollutants such as particulate matter (PM10, PM2.5), nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide, etc. However, information from stations at Santacruz and Dombivli is yet to go live.
