    The administration has also imposed IPC section 144 (unlawful assembly) in the city, and asked the residents to burn the crackers 100 meters away from private and government hospitals, educational institutions, religious places and courts.

    "We have imposed a ban on those crackers that make a noise of more than 145 decibels. We have also directed the people not to use fire crackers within the radius of 500 meters from Indane bottling plant situated in Badshahpur and 100 meters away from fuel stations," Singh said.

    The Supreme Court had recently banned the sale of crackers in Delhi-NCR till November 1, dealing a body blow to the firecracker traders and businessmen. The SC refused to lift the ban on Friday.
