Duty of the State Govt to ensure only Green crackers are sold: Karnataka HC

  • On Friday, the Karnataka High Court ordered the state government officials, municipal authorities and police officers to ensure that only 'green crackers' connected to the CSIR-National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI), Petroleum Explosives Protection Organisation (PESO) and QR code logos are sold in the state.

  • The Division Bench of Chief Justice Abhay Shreeniwas Oka and Justice Vishwajith Shetty followed this direction after it was told that on November 12, after a November 12 High Court order, the State Government had released a new order relating to green crackers.

  • The new government order (GO) demonstrated that the distinct green emblem of CSIR-NEERI and PESO on their packaging would distinguish green crackers.

  • "Green crackers do not contain toxic additives, thus greatly minimising air emissions due to firecrackers. Compared to traditional crackers, these crackers are less harmful," the GO says.
