Smoggy conditions continued to prevail in the national capital today morning, leading to cancellation of seven trains and rescheduling of nine.

According to Railways, 26 trains have been delayed, nine rescheduled and seven cancelled.

An official of the MeT department said that the minimum temperature settled at 13.2 degree Celsius.

The official said that the humidity level recorded at 8.30 am was 91 per cent.

The visibility was recorded at 1,500 meters at 5.30 am, which dropped to 1,000 meters at 8.30 am in the national capital.

Delhi has been experiencing dense smog for about a week, forcing authorities to enforce emergency measures such as banning construction activities and brick kilns in the National Capital Region.

Air quality in the city remained 'very poor' yesterday despite showing a marked improvement, prompting the EPCA to continue with the emergency measures such as ban on trucks.
