Diwali 2021: Diwali Firecrackers Banned In Delhi This Year Too Over Pollution

The Delhi government on Wednesday banned the storage, sale and use of firecrackers in the national capital during the Diwali season due to concerns over hazardous air pollution levels.

“In view of the seriousness of pollution after the stocking of firecrackers by trader… last year a complete ban was imposed late, which caused losses to traders. It is an appeal to all traders… in view of the complete ban, do not store or sell firecrackers,” he tweeted.

Air pollution levels in Delhi – ranked in March as the most polluted capital city in the world – have long been a debate between those who insist on bursting firecrackers and environment and health experts.
