Why Supreme Court banning firecracker sales in Delhi-NCR doesn't help

Justice A.K. Sikri said today: 'Let's try out at least one Diwali without firecrackers'.

On September 12, the court had temporarily lifted its order dated November 11, 2016, suspending permanent licences for sale of firecrackers in Delhi-NCR.

CAIT National President B C Bhartia & Secretary General Praveen Khandelwal said that Supreme Court has imposed ban on sale of fire crackers in Delhi NCR but there is no ban on bursting of crackers. Therefore it also ordered that a relevant agency compute the impact of a noise-and smoke-free festival this year.

Global environmental group Greenpeace said the court ban on crackers was only a small relief for the "episodic air pollution levels in October". The apex court's idea here, it seems, is to test whether or not firecrackers really add to the overall levels of pollution in the capital.

"The court has made it clear that all licences stand banned forthwith", Haripriya Padmanabhan, one of the petitioners, told NDTV news network after the order. Our country's situation past year during Diwali was disgusting, the air we were breathing was polluted and I couldn't get out of my house due to all this chaos caused by the crackers.

" A year ago, the top court had suspended all licenses which permit sale of fireworks, wholesale and retail within the territory of NCR, following a petition flagging the alarming rise in pollution levels after Diwali". This is often blamed on burning of unwanted vegetation on farms in neighboring states, usual at this time of year, worsened by fumes from fireworks.

According to Delhi Pollution Control Committee, the PM 2.5 levels had reached 999 - 16 times over the safe limit of 60 previous year. She said, "So what that it's sale is banned, I will still celebrate it by the use of paper bombs".

The children argued: 'We are the most vulnerable category when it comes to air pollution, especially from suspended particles and toxins.
