Stubble burning incidents have come down by more than 50 per cent in 2023 in Haryana, Punjab, NCR – UP, Rajasthan and Delhi. The Environment Ministry said that during the last 45 days period, stubble-burning incidents have reduced to around 6,300, compared to around 14,000 such incidents in the corresponding period last year.
 
The Ministry said a series of interventions are being undertaken by various stakeholders including frequent review and daily monitoring for this significant reduction.
 
The Central Government has released funds of more than 3,000 crore rupees under the Crop Residue Management Scheme for the management of paddy straw to the State government of Punjab, NCR States and Delhi.
 
The Ministry has also warned that there has been a sudden spike in stubble-burning cases in Punjab during the last few days and harvesting is expected to peak in the next couple of weeks. The Punjab and Haryana governments have been advised by the Commission for Air Quality Management in NCR and Adjoining Areas to mobilise the entire State administrative machinery to take all preventive and corrective measures for control of stubble burning.
