Jalandhar, September 27

In view of the orders issued by the Punjab and Haryana High Court, no licence would be issued this year to store or sell firecrackers in the district, said Deputy Commissioner (DC) Ghanshyam Thori. In an order issued today, the DC said as per the High Court orders 20 per cent licences were to be issued of the total licences issued in the year 2016. He added that in that year only two licenses were issued by the administration of which 20 per cent constitutes 0.4. Thus, no licence would be issued this year in the district.

However, he clarified that the decision has been taken for the areas falling outside the MC limit because the city area comes under the jurisdiction of the Commissionerate of Police, which would take the decision for the explosive licence for their area accordingly.
