This is burning paddy straws - preparing the field for next crop. This is not a good practice to manage stubble.Its harmful. AQI may potentially go up.
Vigilance activities on farm fire should be stepped up.
Machineries used leave lot of paddy straws in field that farmers prefer to burn. Manual activities leave little or no paddy straws in field, but it is labour intensive. Paddy straws can be used in winter as bed for cattles to provide them warmth.
It appears that farmers are in a hurry to prepare the field for next crop. Alternative means such as growing vegetables, fruits should also be explored to utilize the farm fields. more  
Horrible. Some thing Concrete Action Plan needs to be prepared & implemented on the lines of Bijjing more  
How bad it can get- it is already scary more
