The article reports on air pollution concentrations in Haryana subregion of India. The explosion of urban population, rapid growth of industries and increase of automobiles traffic in and around cities have resulted in severe air pollution and the threatening human health. Recently, air pollution problems in large cities in Asia were reported in 20 megacities report. This study is to assist the industrial growing urban area in addressing rapidly growing environmental problems. Some region of Haryana State was chosen for presenting the status of air pollution in this paper. The Haryana sub region is growing rapidly which ultimately results in significant changes in environmental quality.
