Mumbai releases guidelines for chath Puja celebration

A day before Chhath Puja, big news has come from Mumbai. This year, devotees will have to worship Chhath Mahaparva in their homes. BMC has issued guidelines regarding this, under which Chhath Puja has been banned on the banks of sea and pond in Mumbai. BMC says that this decision has been taken due to increasing corona infection.

Significantly, North Indian society living in Palghar district including Mumbai and adjoining Thane, Kalyan, Navi Mumbai, and other cities of the state like Pune, Nashik, do Chhath Puja after Diwali. In such a situation, North Indians will be very disappointed due to the ban on performing Chhath Puja on the seashore in Mumbai.

The Chhath festival dedicated to the Sun God will be celebrated on Friday and Saturday. A release issued by BMC said that large-scale Chhath Puja has been prohibited, because of the physical distance required to avoid the Covid-19 epidemic when large numbers of people congregate on the beach and river banks. It will be difficult to follow.

The BMC has clarified that artificial ponds will be allowed to be built at the departmental level on the basis of permission from the institutions. A medical team will be posted at the place of worship. And antigen or RT-PCR tests will also be done if required.
