Traders move SC to vacate ban on crackers’ sale

| | New Delhi

A section of traders on Wednesday moved the Supreme Court seeking modification of the October 9 order banning the sale of firecrackers in Delhi-NCR region till November 1.

The traders told the apex court that their licences were revived in pursuance of the apex court’s order passed on September 12 following which they procured firecrackers for sale during Diwali investing huge amounts. They said the ban will cause huge loss to them.

A Bench, comprising Justices Ranjan Gogoi, AM Sapre and Navin Sinha, assured the counsel for the traders that it will consult the judge concerned, who had passed the order, for placing their interim application for urgent hearing. The apex court had on September 12 temporarily lifted the ban and allowed limited sale of firecrackers.
