New Delhi  : The Environment Pollution Prevention and Control Authority on Tuesday stated that diesel generators have been banned in Delhi, barring those used in metros and hospitals.

 The efforts come in the wake of degrading air quality in the national capital, which has now entered into the 'Red Zone'.

In a bid to keep a

check on pollution, several measures have been passed in the recent past, the most recent being a ban on the sale of firecrackers.

The Supreme Court, on October 9, restored the ban on the sale of firecrackers till November 1. While delivering its order, the top court said it wants to test the effect of the ban on air quality after Diwali.
