SC Wants Quality Control On Green Crackers Manufacturing
NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Tuesday said it wants every consignment of the material used in manufacturing green fire crackers to be tested for quality control as the issue pertains to public health.

Taking note of the status report prepared by the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF), a bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde directed that a quality control mechanism be set up in each manufacturing unit of green fire crackers within 15 days and such units be monitored by officials from the Petroleum and Explosive Safety Organization (PESO).

“We virtually want each and every consignment of materials (used in manufacturing of green crackers) to be checked, because this is the matter concerning public health,” said the bench which also comprised Justices Sanjiv Khanna and Surya Kant.
