The central government has issued a warning against the illegal import and use of Chinese firecrackers.
The use of Chinese crackers is against Explosive Rules, 2008 and is harmful as they contain banned chemicals like red lead, copper oxide, lithium, etc. These chemicals are highly dangerous and inimical to the environment. Buying Chinese crackers also affect our economy and pose a threat to the domestic industry. The public is, hence, advised to avoid buying such hazardous Chinese crackers. If the public comes across any sale or storage of Chinese crackers, they are requested to inform the Control room at 044-25246800.
