Complete ban on firecrackers- HC strict orders

Kolkata: After Maharashtra and Delhi, the Calcutta High Court has now banned the sale and use of firecrackers a few days after allowing 'green firecrackers' during Kali Puja, Diwali and all festivals in the state. The court on Friday ordered that firecrackers will not be used on Kali Puja, Deepawali and other festivals.

The court has ordered a ban on the sale and use of firecrackers to prevent air pollution amid the corona epidemic. Only wax or oil lamps are allowed to be lit. A bench of Justices Sabyasachi Bhattacharya and Anirudh Roy directed the police to take legal action against anyone found violating the ban and seize crackers.

The Kolkata High Court has nullified a recent notification by the West Bengal Pollution Control Board allowing 'green' crackers to be fired for a limited period on Diwali and Kali Puja. The bench passed the order on a petition seeking a ban on fireworks. After that, the use of firecrackers on Deepawali and other festivals will now be considered illegal.
