Supreme Court modifies Diwali cracker ban order, retains 2 hour cap

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday modified its order fixing a time slot of 8 PM to 10 PM for bursting firecrackers on Diwali. It said the timing will be changed in places like Tamil Nadu and Puducherry but will not exceed two hours a day.

A bench comprising Justices A K Sikri and Ashok Bhushan also observed that the  direction for permitting the use of green crackers was meant for the Delhi-NCR region and was not pan India.

The apex court was hearing a plea by Tamil Nadu government which sought its nod for bursting of crackers on Diwali morning in accordance with the religious practices in the state.

In its October 23 order, the court had ordered that bursting of firecrackers on Diwali and other festivals would be only from 8 PM to 10 PM.
