Recent sources from the Environmental affairs and various surveys unanimously declared that the National Capital, New Delhi is the most affected state regarding pollution in India. The pictures of smog-filled Delhi air after Diwali celebrations last year are the valid proofs of the same. To get rid of such things this year, the Supreme Court has made it that firecrackers aren’t to be burned in the city.  Back then in November 2016 ban was there on the sale of firecrackers in the Delhi-NCR region.

With the stern position on the law that was made earlier, the SC said that it has not changed the September 12 order but its November 11, 2016, order which bans the sale of firecrackers “should be given a chance”. Diwali is all set to be celebrated on October 19, but, this year, it will be without crackers.
