During the Corona crisis, the Durga Puja pandals of Bengal got some relief from the Calcutta High Court. Hearing the review petition, the court has approved entry into the pandals with conditions. The Calcutta High Court in West Bengal has given some relief to the pandals during Durga Puja. With conditions, the court has now approved the entry of people into Durga Puja pandals. Earlier, due to the Coronavirus crisis, the High Court had banned the entry of people into Durga Puja pandals.
The Calcutta High Court has issued these instructions while hearing the review petition of Forum for Durga Puja. According to them, now in small pandals, ten organizer members can stay in the pandal at one time, while the maximum number can be 15. At the same time, this number can increase in big pandals. A total of 60 people can live inside the big pandals, whose list has to be made. 45 people will be able to join the pandal.
According to the High Court, a list should be made outside the pandal at eight o’clock every morning, which includes the names of the people coming to the pandal. This can be decided according to the daily situation. However, the court has not allowed vermilion to be played, as it has more scope for crowdfunding. With this, the court has now refused to hear further in this case.
Let us tell you that amid the coronavirus crisis in Bengal, the Calcutta High Court had declared all Durga Puja pandals as no-entry zones. This decision was opposed by the state government and other organizations, as well as appealed for some relaxation under the instructions.
Every year in West Bengal, big pandals are held during Durga Puja, where thousands of people go. Not only Bengal but people from all over the world come here to participate in the celebration of Durga Puja, but this time it is not happening due to Corona crisis.
