Now an air quality monitoring station will be installed in PGDAV Evening College. It would be the first educational institution ever to have such an outstanding structure for maintenance and environment control.
College principal R K Gupta said the college had requested the DPCC to set up a station. He added that the construction has been going on at a great pace and it will start functioning by the second week of September. The expense for its installment will be about Rs 2 crore.
It sounds to be really effective for DPCC has procured ultra-advanced, fully automatic ambient air quality monitoring instruments from Ecotech Australia.
This will keep a check on the air quality of the areas especially with high traffic density and congestion like of Nehru Nagar, Maharani Bagh, Ashram, Srinivaspuri, Lajpat Nagar, etc.
An LED-display board will also be installed at the front fence of the college that will help onlookers know the concentration of air pollutants.
In future, the station might be a possible point of attraction for students,scientists, research scholars and interested citizens.
