SC bans firecracker sale in Delhi-NCR

The capital will celebrate a cacophony free Diwali this year as SC has banned the sale of firecrackers in the Delhi-NCR region till October 31. This might be good for the environment as the air pollution had become manifold severe after Diwali in 2016. However, the workers of the firecracker industry are lamenting over this decision and are worried that other states might emulate the top court order. 

राजधानी इस वर्ष एक शोर-मुक्त दिवाली मनाएगी क्यूंकि उच्च न्यायालय ने 31 अक्टूबर तक दिल्ली-NCR क्षेत्र में पटाखों की बिक्री पर प्रतिबंध लगा दिया है। यह पर्यावरण के लिए अच्छा होगा क्योंकि 2016 में दिवाली के बाद वायु प्रदूषण कई गुना अधिक हो गया था। हालांकि, पटाखा उद्योग के मजदूरों ने इस निर्णय पर शोक जताया है और वे चिंतित हैं कि अन्य राज्य भी उच्च न्यायालय के आदेश का अनुकरण कर सकते हैं।
