In compliance with the directives of the National Green Tribunal (NGT), the order will remain in effect until further notice to curb air pollution during the festive season.

The PCB notified that green crackers in comparison to traditional crackers have a low emission rate with smaller shells producing lesser harmful emissions to the environment.
