4) for SPM and SO2 have been estimated separately for residential and commercial locations and also using the combined data for the two types of locations for each of the time periods as well as for the pooled data for the three time periods. In each case, OLS estimation has been done assuming an additive spherical equation random disturbance term and the adequacy of the OLS estimation has been examined by performing some standard regression diagnostic tests like Jarque-Bera test of normality of residuals etc.

In Figure 1, the curve 3 depicts the EKC path in the off-steady state30 and it is totally unstable because both the stocks (E and K) increase over time at Z point. At point X, the net change in . , K > 0 ) which is essential for continuing economic growth as well as to maintain E& = 0 . Thus, the environment is stabilized31 with capital accumulation. , E& = 0 ). Economic growth may be compatible with environmental protection, but this is not automatic. With an insufficient amount of resources allocation for environmental improvement, economic growth will tend to exhaust the environmental resource in long run.

One, two and three asterisks indicate that a coefficient estimate is significantly different from zero at 10%, 5% and 1% level, respectively. 39 Grossman and Krueger (1995), however, did not find a minimum point of the estimated curve for heavy particles. 6 present our regression results for SPM. 1A suggest that the shape of the underlying relationship between PCGDP and SPM is Ushaped.
