“Production, storage, sale and use of all types of fireworks are strictly prohibited so that people’s lives can be saved,” Ray said in a tweet on Twitter.

Rai said there will be a ban on the sale of fireworks online as well, and an action plan will be drawn up after discussions with Delhi Police, Delhi Pollution Control Commission and Department of Revenue to ensure strict enforcement of the ban.

The Delhi government has banned the sale and use of fireworks on the last Diwali as well due to concerns about alarming levels of air pollution.

In addition to fireworks, air pollution in Delhi during Diwali was made worse by straw burning – a controversial practice – in neighboring states such as Haryana and Punjab.
