It’s no surprise that pollution is a perpetual problem in India. But it’s definitely disheartening to hear that India has slipped 32 ranks in the global Environment Performance Index (EPI) 2014 to rank a lowly 155 and its capital Delhi has earned the dubious tag of being the world’s most polluted city.
According to the report, National capital Delhi the world’s most polluted city. It beats China’s Beijing, where pollution alerts prompted immediate government intervention. Delhi’s rising levels of pollution seem to have so far been ignored by government agencies.
India has been ranked 155 of 178 countries on the green index.
