The post that went viral claiming a complete ban on firecrackers in the country is misleading. While hearing a petition on November 7, the Supreme Court clarified that its earlier order banning firecrackers made using barium and other banned chemicals did not apply only to Delhi-NCR but applied to the entire country.

In the 2021 judgment, the Supreme Court did not impose any ban on green firecrackers and in the latest judgment, the Supreme Court did not make any changes in this order.
New Delhi (Vishvas News). Following the court’s ruling on the petition filed in the Supreme Court seeking a nationwide ban on firecrackers, viral posts on social media claimed that the country’s Supreme Court had ordered a nationwide ban on firecrackers. On various social media platforms, users are sharing it as a solution to ban firecrackers across the country ahead of Diwali.
Vishvas News in its investigation found this claim to be misleading. In its recent judgment, the Supreme Court reiterated the earlier instructions and made it clear that the earlier judgment (ban on firecrackers made of barium and other banned chemicals) is not applicable only to Delhi-NCR but is countrywide. In the Supreme Court’s earlier decision, there was no ban on all types of firecrackers. The court clarified in its order that low emission (enhanced crackers) and green crackers can be manufactured and sold. The Supreme Court reiterated this old order in its recent order. It is therefore misleading to claim that the Supreme Court has banned firecrackers altogether.
