According to an official statement, the NHRC has expressed strong concern over the incidents of stubble burning in North India, especially in Punjab, as it is increasing the risk of air pollution in many cities. Due to stubble burning, the air quality has become ‘severe’ in many cities and is also affecting the health of the people.

The commission said that the incidents of stubble burning should be strictly banned. It said that Punjab would be fined heavily if the situation did not improve. On this occasion, the commission reviewed the matters related to stubble management in Punjab from the Chief Secretary and also asked for some data in this regard.

Punjab Chief Secretary Vijay Kumar Janjua said that under the leadership of Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, the entire machinery of the state is trying to reduce the incidents of stubble burning this year. He says that farmers across Punjab are being encouraged and made aware not to burn stubble.
