MP: Indore administration allows Holika Dahan celebration with 20 people

After protests over the ban on the public celebration of Holika Dahan, the Indore district administration has now given a partial relaxation allowing a maximum of 20 people to gather at one place for the celebration while adhering to COVID-19 guidelines.

Similarly, for the Shab-e-Barat, residents of the local area will be allowed to visit 20 people in their nearby cemetery at once maintaining the COVID-19 norms. The administration has said it is the responsibility of the cemetery committee to ensure the guidelines are followed.

In view of the increasing number of COVID-19 cases, the state government has imposed a two-day lockdown in Indore.

The district administration has ordered a lockdown on March 28 and March 29 after discussing the concerns with the Crisis Management department over rising COVID-19 cases in the city.
