Indian government set attainable air quality index and pass more extreme regulations

The air pollution levels in New Delhi are equivalent to smoking 44 cigarettes a day. The Indian government has not done enough to reduce this pollution. They are merely reacting to the problem by mandating that cars with odd license plates drive one day and cars with even license plates drive another day or that certain schools keep children home for a week. When some of these children's homes do not even have air purifiers to begin with, how is this helping the problem? The particles in the polluted air are still settling in their small lungs, causing them to cough, feel pain, or even throw up. The government needs to put more stringent regulations in place to reduce the smog that has settled over the city.
