Setting aside the complete ban on firecrackers by Calcutta High Court in the state of West Bengal during the festival of Diwali.
It stated that green crackers, which are made using relatively less-polluting materials, can be used during the festive season, starting this week.
While giving the ruling, the Supreme Court judges ruled that, "There cannot be a complete ban of firecrackers. Strengthen the mechanism to stop misuse."
Supreme Court Justices AM Khanwilkar and Ajay Rastogi also asked the West Bengal government to explore the possibility of ensuring that banned firecrackers and related items are not imported in the state and stopped at entry points.
