The present study has a very strong focus on “Indoor Air Quality Monitoring”. The monitoring has been performed at the selected locations of Muzaffarabad, Mirpur and Bhimber in residential, commercial and industrial areas for ambient air. Indoor air quality has been measured in schools, houses, hospitals and industrial units of different locations of Muzaffarabad, Mirpur and Bhimber.
Geographically, the northern part of AJK encompasses the lower part of the Himalayas. Fertile, green, mountainous valleys are characteristic of Azad Kashmir's geography, making it one of the most beautiful regions on the subcontinent. The southern parts of Azad Kashmir including Bhimber, Mirpur and Kotli districts have extremely hot weather in summers and moderate cold weather in winters. It receives rains mostly in monsoon weather. Snow fall also occurs there in December and January. This region receives rainfall in both winters and summers of the order of more than 1400 mm, with the highest average near Muzaffarabad.
