The Supreme Court has allowed the sale and usage of green crackers, considered to be less contaminating, for two hours in Telangana, where the state federal government had enforced a total banned following an order from the state High Court.
Allowing the 2-hour relaxation, the leading court added that the state would have to follow restrictions imposed by the National Green Tribunal on November 9.
While prohibiting the usage and sale of firecrackers in Delhi, neighbouring areas and all cities with “poor” air quality, the green court had allowed sale and use of less polluting “green crackers” in areas where air pollution was “moderate” or below only for two hours during festivals like Diwali, Chatt, Master Purab New Year and Christmas.
