The district collector issued the order based on the inspection carried out by the Fire and Safety Regional fire officer, inspector-general and Kanayannur tahsildar.
The order also stated that the application for the fireworks display should have been submitted to the office three months before the display date.
Meanwhile, the district collector issued the order after the samiti approached the Kerala High Court seeking a directive to grant a licence for the fireworks display.
