New Delhi (ILNS): The Delhi High Court today directed the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) and the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) to treat as representation a plea seeking ban on bursting of crackers and burning effigies of Ravana during the festival of Diwali.

The division bench of the Chief justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan passed the above order while hearing a plea filed by advocates Chetan Hasija and Sahil Sharma, seeking a direction to the DDMA and CPCB to prohibit the burning of crackers and burning of effigies of Ravana having regard to the increasing levels of pollution in the city.

However, since no representation had been made before the concerned authorities, the bench directed the petitioners to file a representation before the concerned authorities.

The petitioners had submitted that “already witnessing a surge in pollution levels since September 25 due to ongoing practices of stubble burning and hence, the situation is getting alarming keeping in mind the pandemic”.

It was further argued that “apart from stubble burning, Delhi experiences degradation of air quality because of the burning of effigies and crackers during October and November due to the holy festivals of Dussehra and Diwali.”
