October 9, 2017: Ahead of the annual Diwali celebrations on October 19, the Supreme Court of India has put a ban on the sale and distribution of firecrackers.

The ban will last until 1 November.
The Supreme Court order came in response to several petitions, asking for a restoration of the ban it had first ordered in November 2016, before temporarily lifting it in September stating that a complete ban would be an "extreme step” and a "graded approach" was needed to tackle pollution.
“Let's try out at least one Diwali without firecrackers,” the top court observed on Monday, suspending the sale of firecrackers in the region.
The court said it wanted to test if banning fireworks would make a difference to Delhi's air quality, ranked among the worst in the world.
However, those who had already bought firecrackers can still burst them on October 19.
Last year's ban on the "possession, stocking and selling" of fireworks was ordered only after Diwali, when the city's air quality had already reached hazardous levels.
