Did I jeopardize my kids' health by moving to Delhi? - The Times of India

Wanted to anaylayse greater noida on pollution levels...is there any data available?
Is there any govt/pvt pollution data collector in GN?

This might be the last sustainable town in ncr considering the low density and fixed construction guidelines...

Views needed....i request no bashing on law and order, ROI/ investment stuff....the topic is pollution...plz stick to that.

  • Indeed Greater Noida is far better in terms of pollution in NCR and other metro cities. I stayed there in Anand Ashray apartment for 2 years (2011-2013). They were my most healthy living days in Indian cities so far :) Being an endurance sports enthusiast, I loved cycling and morning runs on exp. ways, service lanes and GN roads. Amazing place to live!

    Now I have moved to Bangalore, and this place is super polluted & city infra is pathetic. Miss those free space, fresh air and well planned infra of GN.

    One good thing I did, bought a duplex in Jalvayu in 2012. I will certainly like to go back some day.

    Cheers !

  • Indeed, without any doubt, probably once metro connected in future, it would be far away from reach.

    I have been thinking about the same since past 3 years what the NYT journalist said. Pollution here has been excessive and has caused development of allergic rhinitis & other allergies in my little daughter. I know I must move from Gurgaon IMMEDIATELY. I am self-employed, have secured visa in UAE and I can see in terms of pollution UAE is much better than India with the exception of occasional dust storms there. Am confused whether to consider Dubai or a less polluted place like Chandigarh or Pune in India. It's unpredictable how my daughter will react to new place in the long term but I have seen her doing so much better in places with good air quality. The down side of living in an Indian city is poor quality of services - for instance, the house where I live I can see Mold growing at many places but I can not find a single Mold specialist in the whole of Delhi/NCR. Neither the land lord nor plumber or painter understand it well.
