Farmers continued to burn stubble as the latest incident has been reported from Kheri village in Sangrur region. Stubble burning, near the autumn season every year, has been a key contributing factor of air pollution and breathing problems among people across the northern region, including New Delhi. The ban and action against people burning crop residue is regulated under the Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1981. The National Green Tribunal in the order passed on (10.12.2015), directed and prohibited agricultural residue burning in any part of the NCT of Delhi, Rajasthan, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and Haryana.
