Gurugram, Oct 11 The administration has banned the sale of firecrackers in the district till November 1 following a Supreme Court order, and directed its officials inspect warehouses and shops. But the November order was briefly lifted last month, allowing residents to buy firecrackers ahead of Diwali, which falls on October 19 this year. The order suspending the licences should be given one chance to test itself and find out whether there would be a positive effect, particularly during Diwali, a bench comprising Justices AK Sikri, AM Sapre and Ashok Bhushan said. As there is no ban on bursting firecrackers, those who have already stocked the crackers would still be able to burst them which would throw the court's attempt to curb air pollution, into disarray. "If the people of Delhi contact us over phone or through letters, we will make arrangements for them to celebrate (burst crackers) our important festival Diwali in Bhopal", he told reporters here. The graded reduction in the sale of crackers will start from November 1 onwards, the SC also said.
