Twenty four hour average sampling was done for days during pre monsoon season and four days during post monsoon season from 3 stations as shown in Fig.2. The mechanism of respirable dust sampler is based on centrifugal forces (cyclone separator). Ambient air carrying the suspended particles enter the system through an inlet pipe. As the air passes through the cyclone the coarse, non respirable fractions are separated from the air system by the action of centrifugal forces. These separated particles pass through a conical hopper of the cyclone and get collected in the sampling bottle at the bottom. The PM10 fraction passes through the cyclone and is carried by the air steam to be deposited on the filter paper placed between the top cover and filter adopter assembly. The PM10 fraction is retained here on the filter paper and the carrier air is exhausted from the system through the blower. The PM10 were retained on the filter paper. 2.2.2. Sampling: Faceplate was removed by loosening the wing nut. Filter paper was placed on the centre (on the support screen) with the rough side of the filter facing upwards. Reading of the elapsed time meter was recorded. The specified length of the sampling was 24 hours. After the required time of sampling, the flow meter reading was recorded,
