Orissa HC permits Balu Bazaar Committee To Hold Durga Puja In Cuttack
67 / 100

The Orissa High Court allowed Balu Bazaar Puja Committee in Cuttack to hold the Durga Puja on Monday.

But, the court directed the committee to celebrations with a minimum number of people and strict adherence to the COVID-19 guidelines issued by both central and state government.

The committee had filed a PIL in the High Court on 25th August, requesting it to direct the state government to allow the festival with an assurance that it will be celebrated with strict adherence to COVID-19 guidelines.

The committee had also contended that the government, which permitted the Rath Yatra to be conducted in Puri amid COVID-19 pandemic, should also allow the Durga Puja festival which has been celebrated for more than 500 years.
