Green firecrackers to have QR coding system
Green firecrackers sold this year would have a novel feature of quick response (QR) coding system to avoid manufacturing and sale of counterfeit products, the Karnataka government has said in its order.
Bengaluru: Green firecrackers sold this year would have a novel feature of quick response (QR) coding system to avoid manufacturing and sale of counterfeit products, the Karnataka government has said in its order. The green firecrackers were introduced to check pollution during Deepavali.
The other fireworks with harmful chemicals can affect the respiratory system and prove fatal if a person is infected by coronavirus. According to the order, the green firecrackers packing can be identified through the distinct green logo of CSIR- NEERI and PESO as well as a quick response (QR) coding system. "The QR code is a novel feature incorporated on the firecrackers to avoid manufacture and sale of counterfeit products.
The feature will assist in differentiating green firecrackers from the conventional ones," the order said. The order of the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change reads that green firecrackers do not contain harmful chemicals, thereby reducing air pollution due to firecrackers. Besides, these fireworks are less harmful than conventional firecrackers.
