Bihar: Fireworks banned on Diwali and Chhath

 To control air pollution on Diwali, many states have banned the sale of firecrackers and fireworks. Meanwhile, Bihar has also started following the footsteps. Like every year, this time in Bihar, on the occasion of Diwali and Chhath, the noise of firecrackers will not be heard.

Only green crackers will be made and sold in the entire state. The state government has imposed this ban till December 1. Online sales of firecrackers through e-commerce websites have also been banned. This has been done in the order of the Supreme Court and the National Green Authority (NGT) order. The rising air pollution is directly impacting people's health.

Due to pollution in all the cities, the haze looks like a day. The NGT issued the order on November 9, taking it seriously. It was said that in November last year, in cities of the country where air quality was not good, there would not be firecrackers and they would not be sold. This category includes three cities of Bihar, Patna, Gaya and Muzaffar.

The NGT had also asked the state governments to take steps to prevent pollution in other cities of the country. The state government has issued its order.

The Bihar government has also set fireworks deadlines on festive occasions. Only valid firecrackers can be used on Deepawali and Guruparva between eight and 10 pm. At the same time, firecrackers will run on Chhath from six to eight in the morning. Fireworks can be used for only 35 minutes from 11.55 am to 12.30 pm on the occasion of Christmas and New Year.
