BMC issues special guideline for Kartika Purnima 2021, check details

Bhubaneswar: The Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Monday issued a special guideline for the upcoming Kartika Purnima 2021 festival.

“Congregation of large number of citizens during Kartik Purnima/Bada Osha Festival on November 19, 2021 at Bindusagar Lake, river ghats and other water bodies or at any public location within BMC area is prohibited,” said the guideline issued by the BMC.

Kartik Purnima/Bada Osha Festival functions including visits to temples related to the function are prohibited, it added.

The restrictions have been imposed in view of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

Usually, a large number of people congregate at Bindu Sagar, river ghats and other water bodies on Kartika Purnima to take bath or to sail miniature boats.

Earlier, the civic body had prohibited the Bali Yatra to contain further spread of coronavirus under the jurisdiction of Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation.

It is to be noted here that the same restriction was imposed in 2020 too due to the Covid pandemic.
