New Delhi: Construction and demolition activities in Delhi-NCR are temporarily banned, says the Delhi administration on Sunday in a notice as the air quality dipped to the ‘severe’ category.

The Delhi government has instructed all demolitions and construction activities to be halted till further orders, news agency PTI reported.

The severe air pollution in the city has moved the Centre’s air quality panel to ban non-essential construction work in Delhi-NCR.

The panel had last month also imposed a ban on construction activity in the Delhi-NCR region to curb rising air pollution. However, the Commission for Air Quality Management (CAQM) had directed authorities on November 14 to revoke the curbs enforced in the Delhi-NCR under stage III of GRAP, including a ban on non-essential construction activities.
