Uttar Pradesh is India's Most Polluted State: Report

With 15 of its cities among 30 cities with highest levels of toxic air in the country, Uttar Pradesh is India's most polluted state, says a Greenpeace India report. The report, Airpocalypse II, is based on air pollution related-data collected from Central and State Pollution Control Boards' and Committees' annual reports and their websites and through applications under Right to Information Act. The report brought out the list of most polluted cities in the country based on particulate matter data of PM10 levels for 280 cities during 2016 and in some cases also 2015, covering large parts of the country.
