Amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, a crosscountry lockdown is constrained in India from the outset for three weeks from 24th Walk to fourteenth April 2020 and connected up to third May 2020. As a result of the compelled constraints, tainting level in metropolitan territories the country over fundamentally blocked simply inside couple of days which spellbind discussions regarding lockdown to be the solid elective measures to be completed for controlling air pollution. The current article over the long haul worked on this going to see the air quality circumstance amidst the lockdown time span coherently with exceptional reference to the megacity Delhi. With the guide of air quality data of seven poison limits (PM10, PM2.5, SO2, NO2, CO, O3 and NH3) for 34 checking stations spread over the megacity we have used Public Air Quality File (NAQI) to show the spatial illustration of air quality in pre and during-lockdown stages. The results demonstrated that during lockdown air quality is in a general sense improved. Among the picked poisons, centralizations of PM10 and PM2.5 have seen most noteworthy diminishing (>50%) interestingly with the pre-lockdown stage. Interestingly with the latest year (for instance 2019) during the said time interval the diminishing of PM10 and PM2.5 is as high as about 60% and 39% independently. Among various poisons, NO2 (−52.68%) and CO (−30.35%) level have in like manner diminished during-lockdown stage. About 40% to half improvement in air quality is recognized not long after four days of beginning lockdown. About 54%, 49%, 43%, 37% and 31% diminishing in NAQI have been seen in Focal, Eastern, Southern, Western and Northern bits of the megacity. For the most part, the examination is accepted to be an important improvement to the regulatory bodies since it showed the tainting source control can choke the air quality. Brief such source control in a suitable stretch of time may recover the atmosphere.
