This November, toxic smog enveloped New Delhi for 10 days with pollutants reaching 60 times over the permissible limit.

But with more and more people moving to Delhi every year and about 1600 vehicles getting added to its roads every day, the task of cleaning up the city's air faces a murky prospect.

India's capital of New Delhi is struggling to bring dangerously high level of air pollution under control.

This week, the city was again covered under thick toxic smog.

While all of Delhi's residents are struggling to breathe, the children are the worst affected. 

The Indian government is taking steps to improve the air quality in 2018.
