The present study reported the concentration of air pollutants (PM10, SPM, NO2, SO2) at Malviya Industrial Area (MIA) over Jaipur during 2014. The diurnal and seasonal average of PM10, SPM, NO2, SO2 has been determined from RSPCB air pollution datasets for the year 2014. The value of PM10 and SPM shows the high variability at MIA during the study period. The daily mean concentration of SPM, PM10, NO2 and SO2 ranged from 4.5×101 µg/m3 to 4.82 ×102 µg/m3, 2.4 ×101 µg/m3 to 3.55×102 µg/m3, 8.06 µg/m3 to 5.54×101 µg/m3 and 4.06 µg/m3 to 9.31µg/m3, respectively during the study period. The seasonal characteristic of air pollutant during different seasons of the year 2014 is also investigated. The concentration of PM10 is found highest (1.54×102 ±4.76×101 µg/m3) and lowest (6.81×101±2.97×101 µg/m3) during winter and monsoon season, respectively.
