The Supreme Court order of Oct 23, 2018, imposing a restriction on bursting of conventional firecrackers, and allowing only green crackers to be burned within a two-hour window on Diwali, has left the Rs 20,000 crore firecracker industry in jitters. Traders in Delhi’s Sadar Bazar say that their businesses have been hit by at least 50%.
