The India Air Quality Map

Ten Indian cities are in the top fifteen most polluted cities in the world, according to the WHO Global Urban Ambient Air Pollution Database. To raise awareness of the current air quality in Indian cities the Hindustan Times has created an air pollution map, which shows real-time readings from monitors throughout India.

The Hindustan Air Quality Map allows you to view real-time air pollution maps in 20 Indian cities. Each of the city maps use numbered and colored markers to show real-time readings from air quality monitors. The numbers represent the latest Air Quality Index score recorded by the monitor. The colors of the marker provide a quick overview of how safe or unhealthy the air quality currently is.

If your city doesn't appear on the Hindustan Air Quality Map you might be able to find nearby real-time air pollution readings on the World Air Quality Index map.
