Diwali is around the corner and along with that you can make sure to see a thick layer of fog all around us already and burning crackers would definitely add to the situation.
The governments have realized this and now there might be a possible ban on sales of green crackers as well in Delhi after banning local crackers in the region.
Additionally, The firecrackers have already been banned in the states of Rajasthan, Odisha, West Bengal, and Haryana. Now, the government of Karnataka is also hung up on the same decision and will make a final move after confirmation from Chief Minister, Health, and Medical Education Minister.

“Experts have suggested that firecrackers can badly impact the health of those who have already been infected by COVID and even to those who have not. However, I have asked them to further deliberate and submit a report soon. Based on their report, we will discuss the matter with the Chief Minister and take a call,” the Minister said.
Moving on, the more important news will be that from November 7 and 30, the bursting of crackers is prohibited in Delhi on the call from National Green Tribunal. They have requested for the same.
There will be designated spots only where you can go and aflame your green crackers. And anybody doing otherwise would be penalized. Police had worked up and distributed 260 licenses to the sellers for green crackers and set up 824 places for bursting green crackers.
Delhi’s CM Arvind Kejriwal tweeted on the whole scene “Reviewed the corona situation in Delhi and preparedness with Chief Secy, health officials and all DMs. Corona cases have increased due to festival season and pollution. It was decided to ban crackers in Delhi…,”
We hope this move helps and negate the negative effects that would have been instigated pollution levels otherwise.
