    Abstract:
    Over centuries, Delhi, the capital of India has been the power of several empires. However, with the advent of development in science and technology, industrialisation and urbanisation, Delhi has lost its power as it is the one, majorly surrounded with the effects of climate change due to hazardous and poisonous effects of air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. There have been several efforts in form of awareness campaigns, laws, orders and notices to such practices which may have contributed towards the degrading of the environmental situation in Delhi. The effort has been made not only by Human Rights Commission and the Government but also the Judiciary. The National Green Tribunal have from time to time asked for several reports providing with the scale of pollution in Delhi and have passed several orders ordering the Government and the public at large to adopt methods to control the deteriorating health of Delhi. In this paper the authors would be discussing about the impact of climate change on public health in Delhi, and further will ponder the efforts made by the government concerning to public health and climate change in Delhi. This research paper adopts doctrinal as well as empirical method of research which includes legal concepts, journals, newspaper, case laws, books, etc., collected on the basis of published resources and rules and first-hand data collected on the basis of the survey conducted.
