Moradabad district of India’s northern state of Uttar Pradesh is gearing up to shine bright this Diwali as the firework industry is busy with the production of crackers and expect to do good business during the festival of lights.

With the government banning the import of firecrackers from China, the Indian brands hope to do well.

Chinese crackers have been in demand as they are a lot cheaper than their Indian counterparts. However, the Indian industry workers say this time they have tried to be more innovative, making crackers that are less noisy but sparkle more and are trying to catch up with the demand for their products.

Chinese crackers have always dominated Indian markets making it tough for the local manufactures to sell their product. But this year, the wholesalers and retailers in the city have decided to sell only Indian brand manufactured crackers.

In the past few years, imports from China – from low-cost items like lights and crackers to high-value items like electronics and machinery – have dominated Indian markets in the lead up to Diwali.
