Mumbai's air quality has shown marginal improvement after over a week of  ‘very poor’ AQI.

As of Wednesday morning, Mumbai's AQI was 'poor' at 273.

Meanwhile, the pollutant PM 2.5 and PM 10 concentrations were at 273 and 144 respectively.

The Air Quality Index from 0 to 100 is considered as good, 100 to 200 is moderate, from 200 to 300 it is poor, and 300 to 400 is very poor and from 400 to 500 or above it is considered as severe.

Experts attribute this air quality condition to the low temperature and weak winds along with the dust pollution due to construction activities and slow moving traffic in the city.
