Earlier, Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal Friday announced that classes up to 5 will stay closed until further orders.
He further added that the outdoor activities have already been suspended for other classes.
According to CAQM, the current AQI level in Delhi is around 339, which is about 111 AQI points below the threshold for invoking the GRAP Stage-IV actions (Delhi AQI > 450), and preventive/ mitigating/ restrictive actions under all Stages up to Stage-IV are underway, so the AQI improvement is likely to be sustained. The IMD/ IITM forecast also does not indicate any further steep decline.
