The city's air quality worsened ahead of winter as cooler air traps pollutants near the ground, preventing them from dispersing into the atmosphere.

Exacerbating the problem are farmers from nearby regions who are illegally burning their crop fields, with the resulting smoke winding its way into and settling within the capital.

Delhi's air consistently ranks among the worst in the world. Weather related issues are usually on top of the list, but even there, cancellations are mostly attributed to freak storms, rain, and wind.
