On 15th November, The Central government asserted in Supreme Court that stubble burning is not a cause of pollution in Delhi. The procedures cause only 10 percent of the capital’s dirty air. Whereas, Delhi government has offered a complete lockdown to control local emissions. The statements have started to erupt as Delhi’s AQI crossed 600 in some areas creating a cause of worry. 
The bench listening to the matter consisted of Chief Justice of India NV Ramana, Justice DY Chandrachud, and Justice Surya Kant. The bench observed that the major cause of air pollution in Delhi are dust, heavy vehicular traffic, and industries. The bench also attacked governments saying, if timely steps were taken by the government earlier, pollution would have been at manageable levels.
Whereas, to control vehicle-related pollution, The Delhi Traffic Police said it will undertake all vehicles which fail to generate pollution under control (PUC) certificates. The South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) has also kicked in its winter action plan to tackle dust pollution in its area. 
According to the supreme court, Delhi Govt. affidavit was all about bashing stubble burning and major culprits are vehicular traffic, along with dust not moving due to denser winter air. 
However, in the last 24 hours, the air quality of Delhi-NCR improved from the ‘severe’ to ‘very poor category, with the AQI being recorded at 338 in Safdarjung. In Noida, AQI was 250 at about 3 PM. The situation will get better as winter winds rush in.
