Did Navi Mumbai and Chembur somehow know that today is earth day 22 April 2016 and they better behave?

PM 2.5 limit is 60 micrograms per cubic meter. The smaller PM2.5 were particularly deadly, with a 36% increase in lung cancer per 10 μg/m3 as it can penetrate deeper into the lungs.[8(Wikipedia)]
See that from 24 March 2016 till 21 April 2016 the PM levels were always much above this limit for both Chembur and Navi Mumbai.

Has somebody rigged up?
