New Delhi: The Tamil Nadu government on Monday approached the Supreme Court seeking reconsideration of its order that had put restrictions on burning of firecracker.

The Edappadi K. Palaniswami-led government sought the extension of cracker bursting time on Diwali. On October 23, the apex court refused to impose a blanket ban on the bursting of firecrackers but with certain conditions.

The court had stated that people would be allowed to burst firecrackers only between 8 pm and 10 pm on the Diwali day which falls on November 7 this year.

The top court had allowed use of only green firecrackers with reduced emission and decibel levels during all religious festivals.
