INDIA BREATHES EASY AMID LOCKDOWN: A GEOSPATIAL EVIDENCE

Air pollution has been a major issue in India for the last two decades. The growth of the economic structure of the country has majorly contributed to air pollution. However, when the Covid-19 pandemic shook the entire nation to a standstill, the air quality had improved considerably due to mandatory traffic regulations, shutting down of the industries, inactive transportation, etc. in the last 6 months. The current focus is on air pollution in India (right before the pandemic lockdown and during its various lockdown and unlocks phases in 2020). The geospatial evidence will help in realizing the drastic difference in the air quality before, during, and after the lockdown. It emphasizes the importance of temporary lockdown of human affairs in the future, suitable time intervals, and how to help"mend the environment".
