According to a report, over a million Indians die every year due to air pollution and some of the worst polluted cities of the world are in India.

Based on 2010 data estimates that globally 2.7-3.4 million preterm births may be associated with PM2.5 exposure and South Asia is the worst hit accounting for 1.6 million pre-term births.
