INDIA'S capital is enacting a plan to combat hazardous smog, as air pollution in Delhi hits ''very severe'' levels.

The plan, which includes traffic restrictions and the shutdown of a major power plant, was announced after Delhi  saw severe pollution last year.

The measures, which were ordered by a Supreme Court mandated panel, come days before the Hindu festival of Diwali.

The court has already banned the sale and distribution of fireworks in Delhi ahead of the festival of Diwali,  -the most important Hindu festival in north India, celebrates the victory of good over evil.

However, in the last few years, celebrations have seen air pollution rise to hazardous levels after many firecrackers were set off.

The winter months in Delhi already see high pollution levels due to farmers in the neighboring states of Punjab and the Haryana stubble to clear their fields, and the burning of rubbish in the city.

The World Students Society -all students, wish the students of India very well for and on Diwali.
