New Delhi bans fireworks for Diwali to combat chronic pollution

A day after the Supreme Court banned the sale of crackers in Delhi-NCR region, state Home Minister Bhupendra Singh invited "friends from Delhi" to celebrate Diwali in Madhya Pradesh.

"A bench headed by Justice A K Sikri said the apex court's September 12 order of temporarily lifting the stay and permitting sale of firecrackers would be effective from November 1", a local official said.

The ban on sale and stocking of firecrackers will be in effect till November 1, 2017, the apex court said in its ruling. Last Diwali, the pollution in Delhi was said to be risky and the worst in 10 years.

A public notice has also been issued informing people about the ban and requesting their cooperation in ensuring that the Supreme Court order is implemented, said the officer. SC in its order said though it can not be confirmed with any great degree of certainty that the extremely poor quality of air in Delhi in November and December 2016 was the result only of bursting fireworks around Diwali but even then the contribution of the bursting of fireworks can not be ignored. Diwali falls on October 19."Yesterday (Monday), the Supreme Court gave its decision that there should not be firecracker shops in residential areas".

Each year, Diwali festivities leave the air in Delhi thick with toxic smog and suspended particles, and residents complaining of breathlessness and lung difficulties.

He said Delhiites can come to Madhya Pradesh as the pollution levels are much lower there. According to ban, firecracker manufactures will not be able to sell their products in Delhi-NCR till November 1, 2017. The court also went on to say that firecrackers will be available in the NCR from November 1 onwards.
