No significant difference was noticed in respiratory symptoms in the days before and after Diwali and Dussehra last year, the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) told the Supreme Court on Friday.

Citing a study conducted by the Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC), the CPCB, inane affidavit filed through its Additional Director and head of Air Quality Management Division, Prashant Gargava, said “The respiratory system related symptoms and signs were not much different during pre and post Dussehra and Diwali. Although there was some increase in cough and breathlessness, but this did not translate into any significant illness requiring immediate medical attention. Other system related complaints were also not much during pre and post Dussehra and Diwali”.
