Abstract
The COVID-19 is an infectious disease outbreak in December 2019 that started in Wuhan, China
which is caused by the viral strain Coronavirus SARS-2 (COV SARS-2). The main effects which were observed
due to COVID-19 were economic downfall and spillover of different sectors and industries which gave a halt to
all the major activities worldwide. Though, this pandemic condition has brought massive effect on pollution
level which has drastically decreased across the country and rest parts of the world in just a short span owing to
very less anthropogenic activities which have shown an indication of a cleaner world and exceptional blue skies.
India also faced the phase of total lockdown form 24th March till 30th May 2020 which started with a 21-day
lockdown period and has reached to Unlock-3. COVID-19 has resulted in unprecedented decrease in the partial
pollution in India and worldwide. The drop of concentration of pollutants in the atmosphere changes on the
daily basis, so it becomes necessary to analyse the data in this lockdown period for the better assessment. The
current study is based on the secondary data of Indian metro cities for the air pollutants (PM10, PM2.5, NO2, O3,
SO2, CO, andNH3), which was recorded by NAQI (National Air Quality Index) through operating stations in the
cities to show air quality during lockdown phases. The study will provide insight to understand the role of these
pollutants in the environment.

Key words: National Air Quality Index, COVID-19, Lockdown, WHO, Health Hazards
