Updated, July 2nd: The website is back up but the air quality numbers for the last couple of days look very suspicious – unless the pollution really is off the charts.
For anyone trying to check the air quality index in one of the metros over the last two days they’d have come away disappointed.
The Air Quality Index website, which is run by IIT Kanpur and sits on their servers, has been inaccessible for the last two days. The official IIT Kanpur website remains up.
No official announcement has been made on the IIT Kanpur website and other media outlets don’t seem to have picked up on this news. We’ll keep checking back and update this post when the website is back up and running.
