New Delhi, Nov 20 (ANI): Talking about immediate steps to combat air pollution, Minister of State for Environment Mahesh Sharma said that rising level of pollution has been a matter of concern for every developing nation, and this year though it is less than the previous year, but it's still more. He said that the Indian government after discussing the matter with scientists has decided to use cloud seeding method to induce artificial rainfall, if the situation worsens, that is if the air quality index reaches 400-500. This process has also been implemented in many other countries, he later said. "If the situation worsens then the option of 'cloud seeding' to induce rainfall artificially, as an immediate step can be considered," the minister said.
