Neighbouring Ghaziabad (380), Greater Noida (364), Gurgaon (310), Faridabad (318) and Noida (349) also recorded a slight dip in pollution levels.

Weather experts had earlier said an increase in wind speed would result in some improvement in air quality on Saturday and Sunday.

However, pollution is expected to increase again from Monday due to a dip in wind speed under the influence of a fresh western disturbance.
