The students, in their letter to the Prime Ministre, have suggested measures such as planting more trees and offering to volunteer for the cause; stricter imposition of banning crackers on Diwali, curbing burning of stubble by farmers, lowering the price of air purifiers, free distribution of air pollution masks and strict pollution checks of vehicles and industries for curbing the air pollution in the city.
Rudra Sen, a grade 11 student, in his letter, said, "The particulate matter has increased to an alarming level, steps like artificial rain can also be taken if necessary. As students of Shiv Nadar School Noida, we are ready to volunteer to improve our environment."
Afreen Siddiqui, another student, wrote: "We need to spread awareness about the harm this pollution is causing to our lungs so that people wear masks and install air purifiers in their homes. People could start using metros and also carpool to minimize the number of cars on the roads."
