The Edappadi K Palaniswami-led government sought the extension of cracker bursting time on Diwali.

On 23 October, the apex court refused to impose a blanket ban on the bursting of firecrackers, but with certain conditions. The court had stated that people would be allowed to burst firecrackers only between 8 pm and 10 pm on the Diwali day which falls on 7 November this year.

The top court had allowed only the use of green firecrackers with reduced emission and decibel levels during all religious festivals.

Last year, the top court had banned the sale of firecrackers in the capital city.
