WHO recognises air pollution is a critical risk factor for non-communicable diseases. The World Health Organization (WHO) released its list of the 20 most polluted cities in the world on May 2, which features 14 Indian cities.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) global air pollution database released in Geneva, India has 14 out of the 15 most polluted cities in the world in terms of PM 2.5 concentrations -- the worst being Kanpur with a PM 2.5 concentration of 173 micrograms per cubic metre, followed by Faridabad, Varanasi and Gaya.

Delhi and Varanasi are among 14 Indian cities that figured in a list of 20 most polluted cities in the world in terms of PM2.5 levels in 2016, data released by the WHO showed.

On the show, we look at the startling findings of the report and ask: are steps taken by the government to combat air pollution enough? How can India's air be cleaned? And what can we learn from the China model?
