Vehicles appear to cause more pollution, observes Supreme Court


NEW DELHI. The Supreme Court has observed that the people seemed to be running after the firecracker industry but vehicles are perhaps bigger contributor to pollution.

It also asked the Centre whether there was any comparative study on the proportion of pollution caused by firecrackers and automobiles.A bench of Justices S A Bobde and S A Nazeer expressed serious concern over job loss of people involved in the manufacturing and sale of firecrackers and said, the court does not wish to generate unemployment.

The bench also raised a question as to how the manufacturing of firecrackers could be stopped if the trade is legal and people have licence to carry out the business.

The Apex court was hearing a plea seeking a complete ban on the use of firecrackers across the country on the ground that it gives rise to pollution. (UPDATED ON MARCH 12TH, 2019)
