Delhiites, are you selling, purchasing firecrackers online? Police to take action

No bullock cart races in Maharashtra this Diwali Bombay HC extends ban

As per PTI reports, firecrackers would not be sold in the region during Diwali with the Supreme Court banning their sale till November 1.

A bench headed by justice A.K. Sikri said that the ban would not be lifted but, as interim relief, allowed the licences of traders to be extended for the time period lost under the ban.

Last week when the Supreme Court of India banned the sale of cracker in the Delhi-NCR until November 1, "Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke" actress got trolled for hailing "Delhi Supreme Court".Juhi Chawla wrote on Twitter, "Brilliant move by Delhi supreme Court, firecrackers banned till November 1!" The apex court, during its November 1, order past year, had perched all licenses, which "authorize sale of fireworks, retail and wholesale within the territory of the capital". In November a year ago, the court had stopped the sale of fireworks within the National Capital Region, which includes Delhi and nearby areas, following the alarming rise in pollution levels after Diwali.

The apex court's decision was, however, not welcomed by the firecracker traders. The bench, however, indicated that it had not put any ban on bursting of crackers.


Criticising Shashi Tharoor's statement supporting the ban on firecracker sale in Delhi-NCR, Ramdev said that an intelligent person like him must not speak like this.

Last Diwali celebration, the contamination in Delhi was said to be very hazardous and the worst as compared to the last decade.

A section of traders in the national capital had on Thursday mentioned the matter before the apex court for an urgent hearing and said their licences were revived in pursuance of the court's order passed on September 12 and they had procured firecrackers for sale during Diwali.
