Why did Supreme Court imposed a ban on firecrackers for Diwali in Delhi?
1. To reduce accidents
2. To reduce Pollution
3. To increase awareness
4. To promote Noise-free environment
5. Since its harmfull to health
Answer – 2. To reduce Pollution
The Supreme Court has banned the sale of firecrackers prior to Diwali. The SC had issued a similar ban in the NCR region in 2016. But it did not have the opportunity to observe the impact on pollution levels. Hence the SC has also ordered that a relevant agency should compute the impact of a noise-and smoke-free festival this year.
