Chetan Bhagat Wants Diwali Firecrackers. Trolled For Tweets On Court Ban

The top court last month had partially allowed the sale of firecrackers by directing Delhi Police to not grant more than 500 temporary licences for retail sale of firecrackers in the national capital during this year's Dussehra and Diwali.

The Supreme Court on Friday reserved its verdict on whether firecrackers would be sold in Delhi-National Capital Region during the upcoming festival of Diwali.

The Supreme Court has revived last year's order which had banned the sale of firecrackers in the Delhi, NCR. The license of firecrackers manufacturers have also been suspended till November 1 in wake of the pollution caused in the city due to bursting of firecrackers in the region.

In September, the court had said in its order dismissing the ban, that it will be applicable from November.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday lifted "for the time being" its order of suspending the permanent licences for sale and retail of fire crackers within the National Capital Region (NCR) by modifying its order of November past year.

He had said that rise in air pollution during last Diwali was because of several reasons, including the extensive use of firecrackers. In order to improve the air quality, Supreme Court has restored its order of ban on fireworks sale. Later on September 12, 2017, the ban on fireworks was dismissed temporarily.

While passing the order, the SC said that let us try out at least one Diwali without firecrackers.

The top court by its 2016 order while banning the sale and stocking of firecrackers had directed the cancellation of licences granted for the sale of fire crackers.
