The pollution level in Chennai is really very high.it need to be controlled."" Just hopes"" will not work we should be aware enough......

Pollution in chennai is extremely localized aome places are exceptionally good whereas some place are very bad but as far as air pollution is concerned there is still some hope. When the metro and flyover constructions are over traffic can flow more smoother and air pollution can be reduced. But got to wait till 2020 a radical improvement in air quality.

Really bad and polluted city. Air quality is too bad, no car is properly maintained, so the air is too polluted, the water I don't know as I drink mineral water, it looks like it has chlorine but I don't think you can drink it.

The city, well, no road side to walk. All dirty and too polluted. I do not recommend to live nor to be visited. I'm sorry but I feel very disappointed.

Every person should take a decision immediately to plant a tree. You don't blame others

Save Rain Water. Plant More and more TREES

Smoke pollution is too bad from the vehicles and i find no concern of police to check for the pollution check up certificate of any vehicle. If this continues we need not wonder if temperature increases by 2 degree celcius each year.
