(ii) Main causes of indoor air pollution are harmful gases from cooking fuels (such as wood, crop wastes, charcoal, coal and dung), damp, mould smoke, chemicals from cleaning materials, etc.

Indoor air pollution in Sikkim is as dangerous as outdoor pollution, because the air pollutants come inside the houses or buildings through doors, windows and ventilation.
