Chandigarh, Sept. 9 -- After receiving Rs.10 crore under the National Clean Air Programme (NCAP) of the central government, the Chandigarh Pollution Control Committee (CPCC)is set to conduct an air-quality monitoring study, 'Source Apportionment and Emission Inventory'.

It will be for the first time that Chandigarh Pollution Control Committee will carry out a scientific study to identify the "real sources" of air pollution.

The study will help in the formation of a detailed report about various elements and sources which are key contributors to the urban air pollution.

These include air-quality monitoring, emission inventory, chemical speciation and source apportionment of PM10 (particulate matter that is 10 micrograms per cubic metre)....
