Some people were seen praying in temples for invoking Goddess Lasksmi blessings.

However traders shopkeepers complain that the sales were not up to the mark as compare to previous years they said that perhaps demonetization and GST has impacted the purchasing power of the people.

They further told that the impact is visible everywhere we are receiving less customers than previous years.

The markets were decorated by the market committees for diverting attention of costumers for purchasing items which they have displayed in front of their shops some traders have offered Diwali bonanzas to the customers by displaying banners and making announcements on Public Address system.

Some NGO working for saving environment have appealed to people educated them about the ill effects of bursting of crackers and have appealed to people to celebrate eco friendly Diwali this year.
