Firecracker Sale Banned In Local Markets, Delhi Shops Online

Supreme Court order on firecracker ban expected Monday

The top court's order also does not specify what happens to all those who bring in firecrackers into Delhi-NCR from neighbouring states such as Uttar Pradesh or Haryana where sale of firecrackers is legal.

A section of traders on Wednesday moved the Supreme Court seeking modification of the October 9 order banning the sale of firecrackers in Delhi-NCR region till November 1. Several retailing websites like e-Bay and portals of established fireworks companies like cockbrand.in, buyonlinecrackers.com, crackersindia.com and ayyanonline were seen advertising their "high-quality phuljhadis, rockets and anaars" for all over India till early Tuesday.

Even as the Supreme Court ordered a complete ban on sale of fireworks this Diwali on the ground, it may have forgotten to net the virtual shopping world to this end.

The court reportedly said it wanted to assess whether the ban would make a difference to Delhi's pollution levels.

It said the November 11 previous year order, suspending all licences which "permit sale of fireworks, wholesale and retail within the territory of NCR", was passed by the court keeping in view the situation that had arisen after the last Diwali.

"The court has made it clear that all licences stand banned forthwith", Haripriya Padmanabhan, one of the petitioners, said after the order.

While passing the order, the SC said that let us try out at least one Diwali without firecrackers. Possibility of people buying crackers from other states and bursting them in Delhi-NCR can not be ruled out. 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.

Ahead of Diwali, Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh post a video on his Twitter account with a special message for his fans. "We have no option but to burn stubble to be able to sow again and have taken a decision to continue doing so", As you all know that just blaming them for this problem is not the solution to the problem.
