The real-time AQI in this city is 42 (MODERATE) now. This was last updated 19 minutes ago .

Generally, the air quality at Chennai starts deteriorating in late October. The winters are the worst-hit season in terms of air pollution.

Office going people should avoid personal vehicles and use public transportations or carpooling.

(i) The primary causes of outdoor air pollution are solid, liquid particles called aerosols & gase from vehicles emissions, construction activities, factories, burning stubble & fossil fuels and wildfire, etc.

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

In Chennai, you must use an air purifier or fresh air machine at home or office indoor and close all the doors, windows and ventilations when the outdoor air quality index (aqi) in Chennai is very high. Proper ventilation is highly recommended only when outdoor air quality is improving and moderate AQI range.
