    Use of firecrackers and bursting of crackers in the vicinity of Guwahati Refinery and the oil pipelines within the Central Police district is strictly prohibited

    While the Guwahati city is gripped in festivities, the Central Guwahati police has prohibited the use of fireworks, bursting of crackers within a 500-meter radius from the Guwahati Refinery, Noonmati with immediate effect.
