Bharti Airtel, Ericsson, and IIT Kanpur have collaborated with the Rajasthan Pollution Control Board (RSPCB) for monitoring air quality in Jaipur. The companies have installed low-cost Narrow Band-IoT based air quality sensors in 40 key locations of Jaipur. These sensors require minimal maintenance, are compact, and simple to install.

These sensors will collect real-time data of the air quality, and it will be analysed by the RSPCB and displayed to the public at five identified locations of Jaipur — Yadgar Jaipur; Near VKIA Police Station; Airport Sanganer, Government Secretariat, and RSPCB Head Office Jhalana-Dungri Jaipur. All of the displayed data will include PM10, PM2.5, and air quality index (AQI) concentrations.
