Advisories issued for pollution free Diwali

Wednesday, 07 November 2018 | PNS | Ranchi

A number of appeals for celebrating the festival of lights upholding its true spirit via promoting numerous sustainable ways are floating on different platforms. From district administration’s guidelines and vigilance to the State Pollution Control Board advisory including the engagement of social organisations in sensitising the masses to go for ‘Green Diwali’ celebration, a series of recommendations have come this season.  

The recent verdict of Supreme Court (SC) over controlling noise and air pollution by curtailing the timing of bursting crackers, confining it to merely two hours (8 to 10 PM) has compelled the authorities to plunge into action.

As per the district administration’s directives, Circle Officers (COs), Block Development Officer (BDOs), Sub-Divisional Officer (SDO), Deputy Superintendents of Police (DSPs), Officers-in-Charge (OCs) have been made responsible for checking the time limits, noise pollution level, supply of sale of hazardous crackers including other decrees of SC at their respective jurisdictions.

Similarly, in the wake of the deteriorating environmental conditions, the Jharkhand State Pollution Control Board (JSPCB) had published an advisory recently with a series of instructions including the legal provisions.Also, according to the Centre for Environment and Energy Development (CEED) report, the quality of air will deteriorate significantly and the fireworks including crackers during Diwali will aggravate the situation.
