TN govt moves SC seeking extension of cracker bursting time


ANI General News
The Tamil Nadu government on Monday approached the Supreme Court seeking reconsideration of its order that had put restrictions on burning of firecrackers.
The Edappadi K. Palaniswami-led government sought the extension of cracker bursting time on Diwali.
On October 23, the apex court refused to impose a blanket ban on the bursting of firecrackers but with certain conditions.
The court had stated that people would be allowed to burst firecrackers only between 8 pm and 10 pm on the Diwali day which falls on November 7 this year.
The top court had allowed use of only green firecrackers with reduced emission and decibel levels during all religious festivals.
Last year, the top court had banned sale of firecrackers in the capital city.
