If you are travelling beyond 5km on the Delhi Metro from Tuesday, be prepared to shell out Rs 10 extra with yet another fare revision.

The Supreme Court put on hold the sale of firecrackers in Delhi-NCR on Monday, saying its earlier order permitting them will come into effect from November 1, almost two weeks after Diwali.

The apex court, however, had said its order lifting the suspension of permanent licences might require a review after Diwali, depending on the ambient air quality after the festival.
