Provide chimneys with first quality air filters to every farm / panchayat where the panchayat can collect and burn the stubble.
Replace filter every week or fifteen days.. more  
Hay stock is never burnt in south,especially in Kerala,but the same is dried ,stacked and used as cattle feed through out the year.Why this cannot be followed in North India also.With the result you are solving the pollution problem as well as you are getting the cattle feed also . more  
The surplus hey can be sent to shortfall / needy areas. May be biodegraded naturally. more  
Steps to be taken to curb pollution include
Burning of paddy crop residue post harvesting may be banned. Instead, such residue may be ploughed into watered soil and let it become manure;
Vehicles, particularly Trucks, older than seven years may be de-registered and disallowed from operating within the city. All trucks operating on diesel may be run only on electricity within city limits by being attached to vehicles run on electricity while the the incoming trucks are on the outskirts and outgoing trucks may be run only on electricity within city limits with the vehicle being operated on diesel outside city-limits.
All Buses should be operated with only electricity.
Establishments like those only in Research and Teaching, Controlling Offices like Zonal/Regional/Head Offices may be offered suitable incentives to relocate to centres outside Delhi. more
