We all know how highly polluted these cities are these days. And most of the pollution comes from industries and vehicles. Industries produce air pollution in the form of untreated smoke that has many hazardous gases in it. These industries also discharge thousands of liters of toxic untreated effluents into the rivers, because of which the air and water of the city have become highly toxic, leading to many health complications.
