According to a report by Greenpeace, air pollution in India is higher than that of China. “In 2015, India particulate pollution stands higher than that of China, after increasing at an average rate of 2% over the past decade”, said the report. The NGO also asked India to formulate a focused and time bound plan to control the pollution. India has overtaken China’s air pollution levels in 2015 and the average particulate matter exposure was higher for the first time in the 21st century, a Greenpeace analysis of NASA satellite data has shown.
