The Punjab and Haryana High Court today permitted bursting of firecrackers for three hours - from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm - on the birth commemoration of Guru Nanak Dev, founder of Sikhism, on November 4. A division bench of judges A K Mittal and Amit Rawal, which has been hearing a petition in relating to contamination caused by fireworks, deferred the issue for November 15. Senior advocate Anupam Gupta was quoted in a PTI report,

The HC today allowed bursting of firecrackers on Gurpurab only on November 4 for three hours
Firecrackers cannot be burst before and after November 4, the senior lawyer added. Temporary license holders selected to sell firecrackers on Deepavali can continue to sell firecrackers until November 4, Gupta added. The high court had fixed three hours time for bursting firecrackers on Diwali this year, similar goes for Gurpurab now.
