Air Pollution and Awareness of Air Quality Index in Dhanbad

Gaurav Kumar Shandilya [2]

Abstract: Air pollution poses a critical challenge in Dhanbad, India, intensified by rapid industrial expansion and urban development. This study delves into the public's understanding of the Air Quality Index (AQI) and its ramifications in Dhanbad, often referred to as the 'Coal Capital of India. 'Looking closely at important coal mining and industrial activities, the study examines where pollution comes from and assesses how it affects people's health. Employing a survey - based methodology that incorporates both primary and secondary data, the study aims to measure levels of awareness and behaviours related to the AQI. Results highlight a limited awareness, with notable disparities among various age groups, revealing a paradoxical gap between awareness and action. Additionally, the study offers recommendations to address the air pollution challenge in Dhanbad and enhance awareness of the AQI index.
