Dehradun known for quality life 20 years back has fast lost its credence, thanks to leadership having no vision and regards for the citizens.
Dust, old diesel vehicles and tempos, scattered plastic waste and garbage everywhere, no regular cleaning of roads and other areas, non metalling of roads, demolished green cover, lack of open spaces and above all no vision and concrete documented plan for sustained development of the city even today, all this responsible for pollution and deteriorating quality of life.
Govt, must act now fast, lest Dehradun loses its name and both the present as well as previous governments are to share discredit for the same..

As we know dehradun is far better than other cities but it is moving ahead with a high rate of pollution but there is lack of lands (0pen grounds)in the the miyawala (divya vihar) region ...
So it is necessary to provide open grounds..
And the pollution is very much in the the kargi chowk near sbps school and the students have problems from coming through that way ..... So government has to fix this problem.....
Anticipating a favourable response....

I am more concerned about the air pollution over here which might increase further due to the amount of tourist and vehicles increasing over here i hope so the government soon finds a way to solve this problem otherwise we have to face a very difficult time in the future.

Though the city doon is still better than other polluted metros but it's moving fast in the same direction of donning the tag of A polluted city in case the citizens do not wakeup and press for immediate corrective actions. Simple greed of filling up state coffers supported by builders dishonest means has left doonites breathless.

Dehradun is betteroff in comparision to other cities, but within city a huge construction work is going on right from isbt to iip which has contributed many fold in polluting this area to alarming stge. Here city lacks planned road network even arterial roads are very narrow with full of over crowded traffic. Vehicles need to be standard Bharat stage norms compliant which are presently almost absent here. Roads need more cleanliness by evolving better garbage disposal system. State Govt should approach central govt for upgrading Dehradun a smart city. Public Park culture is totally absent in Dehradun, exception is a small Gandhi park on Rajpir Road, local people generally facing difficulties due to lack of parks. Govt should develop parks on available land within and oitside of city it will be instrumental in pollution control drive and better livings.

Like any other city in India ... Dehradun also lives up to the expectation.... of pollution gods.... intact it outlives the expectation.... dirty roads.... in addition to innovative dustbins aka the road side dumps..... infact they take pride in piling them up.... at least by their standards they are not throwing it everywhere just at roadsides.... also hw can one neglect the always blocked drainage system... but the best part is the attitude of locals..... biggest contributors of the pollution...in addition to no traffic sense... whether it is wrong side overtaking by two wheelers.... or driving in one way or riding without helmets or jumping red.... wait wat are light’s fir.... puhhlesse... don’t bother them... and the icing on the cake is the work ethics of the municipal corporation.... they get paid fir sleeping and turning a blind eye ti the situation.... am I being too harsh nd verbose.... trust me m being decent.... u see English language and my knowledge of the same is not good enough ti expresss the apathy of the situation in dehradun

Environment in Dehradun is deteriorating each day. Number of 4,3 and 2 wheel motorized vehicles is on the rise. The 3 feet wide lane between my house the house next door is piled high with rotting garbage and it has become the breeding ground for flies, mosquitoes, rats, mice,cockroaches and God only knows what else. There are 2-3 other such lanes on Tilak Road where I live. I notice that my neighbors who are educated and local Netas and the orphanage next door burn garbage & plastic spewing off noxious fumes and smoke. People going on morning walks bring their garbage in a big plastic bag and chuck it in the lane adjoining my house. Nagar Nigam does clean up the lanes on Tilak Road 3-4 times a year but on the same day after the clean up, people pile it up next mountain of garbage.

I live near chakrata road in Dehradun. Every morning, the sweepers collect the rubbish on the road side and burn them. I wonder why they don't dispose them into garbage vehicles instead of polluting the air.
#nupur on Mar 24, 2016 :
i dont know about the average pollutipn level in dun.but definitely i find it worse than delhi when its comes to smoke from vehicles. i mean there are no norms..almost no vehicle has filter n direct emission from vehicles has more ppm of pollutants (and could be lethal very much if inhaled) in comparison to average pollution in city.i dont understand why the govt n people r so indifferent & unaware of it.its so sickening
#Medha Nautiyal on Dec 20, 2015 :
Acceptable.But it would have been better if there were more details
#Anonymous on Aug 16, 2015 :
Some areas in Dehradun such as Raipur are nice some like ISBT are terrible. You cant average these out or else you are going to show false results.
#sumit kuliyal on Jun 25, 2015 :
Data shown is good...but would be more good if its in statistical comparison....with data also
