Air Quality Index (AQI) is a measurement unit used by government agencies to identify the air quality of different cities in a country. 

Did you know that the air quality indices vary in countries based on national air quality standards? According to the reports, the air quality gets decreased in many Indian cities. The mounting levels of air pollution in those cities get worsened by the composition of hazardous gases released into the environment due to different sources. It triggers concerns for public health in the country.
