Raipur Collector bans burning of fire-crackers within district limits;heres why this decision
You may have bought fire-crackers with the new year coming but beware something as benign as burning of fire-crackers may a land you in jail.
This is because Raipur Collector OP Chaudhary has issued order prohibiting burning or even inspiring for burning of fire-crackers within the limits of Raipur district.
The order will remain effective in the duration from November 26, 2017 till January 15, 2018.
The order may appear draconian but the decision has been taken in view of worsening situation of air pollution.
The order states that no body should burn fire-crackers within the limits of Raipur or Birgaon municipal corporation.
The order has been issued after the reports of Chhattisgarh Environment Conservation Board as well as that of Raipur Superintendent of Police.>
