Excellent move by NGT

Great news folks. Our ask has been accepted just now by NGT on cracker ban. NGT has imposed ban on sale and use of Firecrackers between November 9 and 30 in Delhi NCR ahead of Diwali. Ban also applicable to all locations across India with "poor" or worse AQI.

GreenCrackers and 2 hour slots for bursting crackers allowed for places with "moderate" or better AQI.

Attached relevant section of the order!!! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ more
