For developing countries like India, it can never be a question of choosing between environment and development - the nation stands to lose if one were to be chosen at the cost of the other. The interests of the nation lie only in planning development in a manner that it shall not harm or adversely affect our natural resources or environmental quality in either the short or in the long run and shall in other words be sustainable. Of late, with rapid pace of industrial development in our country, the concern for environment has become more pronounced. Air pollution is one of the main factors affecting environment. In view of injurious effects of various air pollutants on health of human beings and other living creatures, and their detrimental effects on plants, property and human environment, considerable attention is now being focussed in our country on air quality management to achieve sustainable economic development with the minimum environmental degradation.
