Despite the ban on firecrackers in Delhi, the Supreme Court expressed concern over their use. The Supreme Court has asked the Delhi Police to find the source of the crackers and take action. The Supreme Court told ASG Aishwarya Bhatti that mere action against people bursting firecrackers is not enough. You have to find the source of the crackers and take action against them. You have to take action from the beginning. There is no use in taking action after bursting firecrackers.
On behalf of Delhi Police, ASG Aishwarya Bhati said that after 2016, Delhi Police has not issued license to anyone. Last year 17 thousand kg of crackers, this year 10 thousand kg of crackers have been seized. The court observed that since firecrackers have been banned since 2016, the question of licensing does not arise anyway.
The Supreme Court has concluded hearings and reserved its decision on whether green crackers should be allowed in the country. The court has already said that a complete ban on firecrackers can be imposed, in which case firecrackers should not be used where pollution levels are not good. Green crackers can be used where the environment is safe, but no harmful substances are used. For this, the system of government and agencies should be efficient. However, the court has also made it clear that states which have imposed a complete ban on firecrackers. Court will not interfere with it.
