Udupi DC K. Vidyakumari Urges People to Use Only Green Crackers & Follow Guidelines During Deepawali

Udupi Deputy Commissioner K. Vidyakumari has asked people to use green fire crackers having green colour logo and QR code on them. The DC has urged to celebrate the festival in an environment-friendly manner. People will be allowed to use fire crackers between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. during the festival from November 12 to 15.

Those who burst fire crackers should ensure that children, senior citizens, animals and birds are not disturbed during the celebration. No fire crackers should be burst near hospitals and education institutes and in their premises.

The Deputy Commissioner said that tahsildars and officials of local bodies should inspect the stocks of fire cracker dealers and traders to ensure that only green ones are sold. If they would have stocked crackers other than the green ones the stocks should be seized and legal action should be taken against the traders and dealers concerned.
