When we talk about Agra, the first thing which comes in mind is Taj Mahal. There is no secret that Agra attracts a lot of tourism because of Taj but in recent years its tourism is getting affected due to increasing pollution caused by mining. It is a major reason of worrying for the government and we hope that they will find some way to tackle the issue.

Ludhiana is the tenth most polluted city in India and is the hub of Industries in the country.

It is a major reason of worrying for the government and we hope that they will find some way to tackle the issue. The level of pollutants found in the air which are less than PM 2.5 is 86 ug/m3

 

most polluted cities in India10.Allahabad
Allahabad in located in Uttar Pradesh. The main reason for pollution in the air is due to industries located on the bank of river Ganga, population density and lack of awareness among citizens in controlling pollution.
