NEW DELHI: Air pollution shortens average life expectancy in India, the second most polluted country in the world after Bangladesh, by five years, according to a new Air Quality Life Index (AQLI) analysis released on Tuesday. In fact, pollution would cut 7. 6 years of life expectancy of 40% of Indians who live in the IndoGangetic plains, says the the report released by the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago (EPIC).
In the case of Delhi, the world’s most polluted capital, people would lose 10 years of their lives in a business-as-usual scenario of not adhering to the new WHO standards.
