Supreme Court refuses to relax firecracker ban during Diwali

18 Octobre 2017

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Chinmoy Biswal said details from all SHOs were being collected to ascertain how many shops were found violating the court order and "action will be taken against the violators".

The Supreme Court in its October 9 order had sought a complete ban on sale of firecrackers in the National Capital Region (NCR) ahead of the upcoming festival of Diwali.

Fourteen people were detained today for bursting firecrackers outside the Supreme Court to protest the temporary ban on the sale of firecrackers by the apex court.

It will not be a violation or defamation of the Supreme Court order, because the court has only banned the sale of firecrackers.

A shop was also sealed in Gurugram's sector 10 and 39 cartons of crackers were seized.

They 14 persons, led by one Satpal Malhotra were arrested and later released, the police officer added.

As per experts, the fireworks industry in India has been registering degrowth of about 40 per cent annually during the course of past about five years leading to rapid decline in profit margins of manufacturers and traders (wholesale and retail) owing to prevalence of illegally imported Chinese firecrackers, rising raw material prices, dearth of labour, restrictions imposed by local administration, anti-cracker campaigns and other inter-linked factors.

According to News18, the protesters belong to a Hindutva outfit called Azad Hind Fauj. However, on October 9, the Court had ordered that its order of September 12 lifting the ban, would come into effect only from November 1 thereby retaining the ban for Diwali. Refusing to revisit the ban order, Justice Sikri and Justice Bhushan said: "We are not entering into any debate. the court has not stopped you from celebrating any festival". "All SHOs have been directed to ensure that no one sells firecrackers".

"This order prevailed during the year but the impact and effect of this order remains to be tested on Diwali days", the bench, also comprising Justices A M Sapre and Ashok Bhushan, said.

"We carried a fortnightly campaign against bursting of fire crackers where students were encouraged to celebrate Diwali with lights and candies and not crackers".

"Going by these considerations, we are of the opinion that the judgment dated September 12, 2017 passed by this court should be made effective only from November 1, 2017".
