    Despite several measures taken by Supreme Court, government and NGOs, Diwali firecrackers turned Delhi’s air quality hazardous. The air quality index recorded capital’s worst air of the year as it jumped to 574 point, which falls in the “severe-plus emergency” category, according to data by the Centre-run SAFAR (System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting And Research). An AQI between 0 and 50 is considered "good", 51 and 100 "satisfactory", 101 and 200 "moderate", 201 and 300 "poor", 301 and 400 "very poor", and 401 and 500 "severe". Above 500 is "severe-plus emergency" category. The rampant burning of crackers increased air and noise pollution. A 'severe plus emergency' air quality index (AQI) essentially means that even healthy people may suffer from respiratory illnesses on a prolonged exposure to such air. This air will seriously affect those with ailments, according to the advisory issued by SAFAR. The top court had allowed bursting of firecrackers from 8 PM to 10 PM only but people were seen defying the SC order.
