Steps again Noida pollution

Shri Singh - appreciate the info. Difficult times call for difficult measures. The fine by Noida Authority for garbage burning should be 50,000 and for construction dust and waste spreading 500,000. No builder would mind paying 50K after violating norms but they may mind 500K. Also, how can we all report garbage burning, dumpers etc for action.

The below are pollution precautions from the health circle via member Asha Gupta

Here are some things we can possibly do to save ourselves.

1. Invest in a mask.
As strange as it may look, a mask is your best shot at filtering out particulate matter so that you can breathe cleaner air.

2. Avoid smoking.
Since the air you’re breathing is already full of harmful particles, try to avoid inhaling more of them. Smoking during these conditions can lead to severe health problems.

3. Use public transport as much as possible.
The metro is a great option since it is air-conditioned and underground in some places, limiting your exposure to the pollution. Avoid using vehicles since you will just add to the pollution.

4. Avoid being outdoors at peak traffic hours.
There are more cars on the road during peak hours and the pollution levels just get worse. Try to travel at off-peak hours and avoid walking on roads that have a lot of traffic.

5. If you must travel by car, keep the doors and windows closed. Avoid opening the doors and windows as much as possible, to limit your exposure to vehicular fumes.

6. Stay home if you are prone to respiratory problems or if you have a heart condition.
Prolonged exposure to pollution can lead to lung diseases, asthma, heart attacks, heart failure and other health problems, so you're better off working from home.

7. Keep the doors and windows shut at home.
When you’re at home, keep the doors and windows shut to keep the contaminated air out, especially if you live in an area that’s very polluted. more

Another source of pollution running of generators, particularly in the cases of industries in residential areas such as schools . In my neighbourhood a high school by name International Public school in E block of sector 20 continues the use of generator despite requesting the owner at no. Of times. The inliving staff is so adamant that even in the absence of student the generator runs even with short periods of owner supply breakdown. Generator with its exhaust is installed on ground level and when use its smoke enters in the houses particularly in those where fans are running on invertor more  
Sumit - share your garbage burning location. DM seems to have just responded to your concern. See the new post more  
Its very unfortunate that some elements are burning garbage & domestic waste indiscriminately in Greater Noida also. Yesterday I clicked photos of huge flame & fume emanating from a illegal dump ground near Grand Venice Mall.These people needed to be sensitised & penalised by local authorities. more
