According to System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR), the repercussions are seen after 8-10 days on meteorological factors such as wind direction, wind speed and temperature. The Supreme Court-mandated Environment Pollution Control Authority (EPCA) had met with chief secretaries of Punjab and Haryana had decided that campaigning is done before the paddy harvesting period for awareness as lot of chemicals are produced after burning residue of crop cutting.

 

Conclusion:

The government is also providing equipment to control air pollution but its cost is too high according farmer so we have to provide a subsidy to the farmer in spite of plenty so that everyone can understand the seriousness of the situation.
