Gurugram admin bans sale of firecrackers

Thursday, 12 Oct, 2017

On Monday, the Supreme Court had banned the sale of firecrackers in Delhi-NCR till November 1. However, there is no clarity on selling of firecrackers online.

The court, while banning the sale of firecrackers till November 1, had also said that its September 12 order temporarily lifting the stay and permitting sale of firecrackers, would be made effective only from November 1. Possibility of people buying crackers from other states and bursting them in Delhi-NCR can not be ruled out.

There are different websites like, ayyanonline,,, which offer online delivery of firecrackers. We are asking this question because they banned firecrackers because it effects the environment which is good but Farmers in Punjab and Haryana resort to stubble burning every year around October to clear the left over from the Kharif crop and make their fields ready for winter farming which could be the reason of air pollutions too.

The traders told the apex court that their licences were revived in pursuance of the apex court's order passed on September 12 following which they procured firecrackers for sale during Diwali investing huge amounts.

A bench headed by Justice A.K. Sikri, while restoring the order, said: "We should see at least in one Diwali the impact of a cracker-free festivity". 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. The graded reduction in the sale of crackers will start from November 1 onwards, the SC also said.
