Bombay High Court restricts bursting of firecrackers in Mumbai during Diwali to these timings

The Bench clarified that it was not imposing a ban on the bursting of firecrackers, since it was not an expert on how much the same contributed to air pollution.

Further, the State government was to consider the measures specified in the judgments of the National Green Tribunal (NGT) and the Supreme Court on firecrackers.

“There are other issues involved in considering the plea to ban bursting of firecrackers including the rights of citizens under Article 25 (Right to freely practice religion subject to some restrictions). Therefore, we are proposing some time limit. State should also abide by the undertaking it has given to NGT from time to time about complying with directions related to bursting of firecrackers,” the Court said.
