Updated:3 weeks, 6 days ago IST

Rohtak(Haryana)/Ludhiana (Punjab), Nov 15 (ANI): The incidents of stubble burning have continued in various parts of Punjab and Haryana. This is happening despite prohibition on the burning of farm residue. The farmers are now burning stubble at night time to not get into notice. Stubble burning in neighbouring states combined with localised factors in Delhi such as vehicular emissions, industrial pollution and smoke from firecrackers around Diwali every year plague the national capital's air quality every year. Yash Garg, Deputy Commissioner (DC), Rohtak, said, "We will take action if any information of stubble burning comes."
