There are several rules for the vendors and sellers selling crackers as well. The licensed vendors can only sell firecrackers to customers. No one is allowed to purchase crackers from any online websites. In fact, the local police will look into these matters and they are in charge of ensuring that things fall into place according to the orders. They will need to identify the people if unlicensed vendors sell crackers. The officers will be responsible for this if someone finds unlicensed crackers.

What Are The Orders Of The Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board?

Back in 2020, the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board said that the residents will need to take permission beforehand for bursting firecrackers. Also, this implies taking permission from district administration or local bodies to burn crackers in open spaces as a community. As per the orders, people need to strictly avoid bursting crackers in Diwali near hospitals, religious places, slums, schools, courts, and places prone to catch fire. People must burn those crackers that are less polluting and generate less sound.
