SC to hear plea seeking ban on use of firecrackers across country

News Agencies | Updated on: 1 December 2017, 13:13 IST

The Supreme Court on 1 December decided to hear a plea seeking ban on the use and manufacture of firecrackers across the country.

The Apex Court issued a notice to the Centre and asked it to file its detailed response within four weeks.

Earlier on October 9, the apex court imposed a blanket ban on sale of firecrackers in the Delhi-NCR in the run-up of Diwali to check the alarming pollution level.

A three-judge bench of the apex court had restored its November 2016 order, banning sale of crackers in NCR and suspended its September 2017 order - which allowed limited sale but banned imports from other states.
