The government of Rajasthan has banned the sale and bursting of firecrackers in the state from October 1 to January 31. The government led by Ashok Gehlot has published a notice on this.

The Home Office has asked licensing authorities not to issue licenses for the sale of firecrackers from October to January, given the possible third wave of Covid-19 and protect the health of the population, according to an official statement.

GROUNDS FOR PROHIBITION

The government has mentioned that it is mandatory to ban the sale and bursting of firecrackers from October 1 to January 31 because the smoke that emanates from the firecrackers can have a negative impact on the elderly and people with illnesses (in especially chronic inflammatory lung disease). Additionally, firecracker smoke can worsen post-Covid complications, the state government has said.

Also last year, the state government led by Gehlot banned the sale of firecrackers on the occasion of Diwali. This was due to air pollution as well as complications from Covid.
