Thermal power station produces huge quantities of particulate matters in the form of fly ash and bottom ash as well as gaseous pollutants like SO2, NOx, CO, etc., which have been continuously discharged to the open atmosphere. Air is our life and ambient air is also our life. We have to survive here according to our life-span created by the almighty/God and have to protect us from the hazardous atmosphere. So for safer ambient air, it must be cleaned and free from dirt. Ambient air monitoring studies have been carried out in and around Chandrapura thermal power station of Damodar valley Corporation (DVC), to evaluate the Concentration of those pollutants, which usually affects the surrounding atmosphere that of residential colonies, townships, schools, and hospitals. Here, interpretation of data restricted to only three parameters, namely, SPM, SO2, and NOx. The paper deals with laboratory analysis with respect to ambient air quality studies and discusses its result of the case study as well as interpretation of data by the application of air quality index (AQI).
