Green Firecrackers Available In Market But They Are Still Not So Popular

Diwali is the festival of lights, we’ve been hearing this since we were 5. And lights from crackers is what we all have enjoyed. Now the availability of green firecrackers makes it more interesting. Though it’s sale is still sluggish due to its high prices, a number of traders are facing low sales. Earlier the sales started from the fortnight of Dussehra but nothing like that seems to happen this year. The  lack of enthusiasm among the buyers & sellers is most likely visible.

These green crackers doesn’t consist of barium & strontium salts which makes them less polluting. Limited number of colours have hindered the sale of these crackers. Another major factor as explained by traders were the limited number of varieties of these green crackers which makes the buyers left with few options only. This was due to the fact that there’s only a small amount of companies engaged in making these green fireworks. Also the high prices of the crackers are something that sellers can’t afford and they shifted for buying diwali lights & decoration instead of green firecrackers.

Nevertheless, there are markets near Jama Masjid encouraging the sale of these green crackers but though it’s relatively small. With the order of Supreme Court last year, the sale of crackers has reduced and thus many traders have lost interest in selling them. Only 97 applications were received by police this year to grant temporary fireworks licences during festive season. Those who are provided licences are required to use QR codes on the fireworks boxes and should display a copy of their licences during the sale. Also the police & special officers are assigned to keep an eye over the illegal selling of banned fireworks.
