Gurgaon administration allows residents to burn crackers on Diwali

"We are pained at communal remarks on the verdict". Every year, Diwali celebrations leave the atmosphere in Delhi thick with lethal smoke and suspended dust particles, and people are complaining of lung difficulties and breathlessness.

"People will burst firecrackers which they have purchased before the order banning its sale", the court said.

A bench headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi where the matter was mentioned said they would discuss it with Justice AK Sikri who has given the October 9 ruling before listing it.

The court was hearing a plea by three children-Arjun Gopal and two others-seeking restoration of last year's order banning sale of firecrackers in view of the worsening of air quality in NCR because of extensive use of firecrackers during Diwali.

Last year, firecracker burning in the Delhi NCR area led to excessive pollution and smog that continued for days.

The court said that its concern primarily was the health of the masses.

The Supreme Court today refused to relax the ban on the sale of firecrackers in Delhi and the national capital region till October 31. As per PTI reports, firecrackers would not be sold in the region during Diwali with the Supreme Court banning their sale till November 1.

The city administration has allowed those residents who have brought Diwali firecrackers in advance to burn them between 6 pm to 10 pm on October 19.

The traders told the court that their licences were revived in pursuance of the court's September 12 order and they procured firecrackers for sale during Diwali.

The court said this as one of the petitioners said Diwali was not only celebrated by the Hindus but also by Jains and Sikhs.
