Despite ban, firecrackers burst in many parts of Delhi on Diwali night

by Dikhyaa Mohanty

People in Delhi disregarded the local government’s prohibition on them, thus a lot of loud firecrackers boomed throughout Diwali night. Gopal Rai, the minister of the environment for Delhi, had previously stated last week that setting off fireworks during Diwali in the capital may result in a six-month prison sentence and a fine of Rs 200.

Despite the official prohibition in effect, individuals began setting off fireworks on Monday evening in various areas of the city, including south and northwest Delhi. On the ground or in the air, loud firecrackers could be heard exploding. The morning after Diwali, Delhi’s air quality was classified as “extremely poor,” although it was far better than in recent years because to favorable weather circumstances that slowed the accumulation of pollutants.

At 7 a.m. on Tuesday, the air quality index (AQI) for the capital was 326. The air quality was reported as “poor” to “very poor” in the neighboring cities of Ghaziabad (285), Noida (320), Greater Noida (294), Gurugram (315), and Faridabad (310).
