Diwali is on October 19 and the order effectively means that no firecrackers will be available for purchase before the festival. The ban does not stop bursting of crackers in the city but only the sale of crackers in residential localities.

Delhi's air quality index spike up to 42 times the safe limit. Medical experts had called last year's pollution crisis in Delhi - worst in two decades - an epidemic, forcing the Aam Aadmi Party administration to temporarily shut schools, halt construction projects and promise giant air purifiers and even artificial rain.

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.

Even as the Supreme Court ordered a complete ban on sale of fireworks this Diwali on the ground, it may have forgotten to net the virtual shopping world to this end. While some fans reminded him that only sale of firecrackers was banned and not bursting them, others took the cricketer to task for being irresponsible.

Last year, entire Delhi-NCR was engulfed in a thick blanket of toxic fog, the morning after the Diwali.

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".

However, counsels appearing for the permanent licencees selling crackers, opposed the plea and said that the September 12 order, lifting the ban, was "well-reasoned" and passed after hearing all the parties, including the Central Pollution Control Board.

The Chhattisgarh government too imposed a ban on the use of firecrackers with high decibels and those highly contributing to air pollution during Diwali. "We have no option but to burn stubble to be able to sow again and have taken a decision to continue doing so", As you all know that just blaming them for this problem is not the solution to the problem.
