"Who said we have banned the bursting of crackers".
"We have imposed a ban on those crackers that make a noise of more than 145 decibels". The apex court has said that people can burst firecrackers which they have purchased before its order banning the sale came into effect.
The court reverted to its November 2016 decision to suspend the sale of firecrackers "to test itself in order to find out whether there would be positive effect of this suspension, particularly during Diwali period".
Last week when the Supreme Court of India banned the sale of cracker in the Delhi-NCR until November 1, "Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke" actress got trolled for hailing "Delhi Supreme Court".Juhi Chawla wrote on Twitter, "Brilliant move by Delhi supreme Court, firecrackers banned till November 1!"
A three-judge bench of the apex court had on Monday 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.
A bench headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi where the matter was mentioned said they would discuss it with Justice AK Sikri who has given the October 9 ruling before listing it. "There are children who wait for Diwali celebrations", senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for the traders, submitted.
Mr. Rohatgi even suggested to the court to designate the time and days for bursting crackers.
The apex court, while banning the sale of firecrackers till October 31, had said its September 12 order temporarily lifting the stay and permitting sale of firecrackers, would be made effective only from November one.
"The sales are already taking place. It is sad", the court said.
