The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has imposed a total ban on sale and use of firecrackers in Delhi and adjoining areas starting midnight of November 9 to November 30. The ban has been imposed ahead of Diwali to prevent further rise in air pollution – already in the “severe” zone – because of firecrackers.

The order will be applicable to more than 2 dozen districts across four states that are a part of the NCR.

Nationwide, the ban on firecrackers will be applicable to all “cities and towns where the average ambient air quality in November last year was “poor” or worse”, the green tribunal has said.
