The Supreme Court authorizes the sale of firecrackers safe this Diwali
As Diwali approaches and when the air quality index exceeds 300 in parts of Delhi, the Supreme Court has authorized the sale and manufacture of low-emission “green” crackers across the country. In Delhi, crackers will only be allowed in designated areas. The Supreme Court set the expected period for the explosion of firecrackers on Diwali from 20 hours to 22 hours. However, the Supreme Court has banned e-commerce websites such as Flipkart and Amazon from selling firecrackers’-commerce websites would be sentenced for contempt of court if they did not follow the instructions said by the court.
