13-10-2017 | Pratidin Bureau. |

The Supreme Court on Friday upheld the ban on the sale of firecrackers in the Delhi-NCR and has directed Delhi Police to implement its order banning the sale of firecrackers.

 

The decision came following a hearing of trader’s plea seeking modification of its October 9 order banning sale of firecrackers in Delhi and NCR till October 31.

 

The Court, however, said that people will burst firecrackers which they have purchased before its order banning the sale but only till 11 PM beyond which strict legal action will be taken against the offenders.

 

While there is no ban on firecrackers in Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh, the Punjab & Haryana High Court has meanwhile fixed timings between 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm on October 19 as the time allowed to burst firecrackers.
