Public Interest Litigation (PIL) by TODDLERS, as young as 6 months to approx 18 months was admitted by Supreme Court of India. This is considered to be a PIL filed by youngest ever citizen of India .
It is a very touching PIL for banning Crackers. Toddlers through their respective fathers cum advocates pleaded that their lungs are not that much developed to breathe due to pollution of crackers.
Toddlers sought directions to curb Delhi’s fatal air pollution including ban on fire crackers during Diwali.
SC has issued notices to the Delhi Government, Delhi Pollution Control Board and the Central Government seeking their response by October 16.
