Besides gaseous pollution, the reason to be concerned is also PM-2.5, dust particles below 2.5 microns . DHOOL in Hindi, which is being produced from the avoidable demolition of not so old houses by the builder lobby to make them stilt plus 4 stories houses for more profit.
In each and every lane in Delhi, the balconies of first or second-floor build outside the actual construction area usually above the road, these type of construction block sunlight and clean air which is an essential requirement to lead the healthy life.
