“Firecrackers banned, no entry in pandals” – See all Kali Puja guidelines by Calcutta High Court

Kolkata: With just a few more days left for Kali Puja, the Calcutta high court released a set of guidelines today, 5th November evening.

The Calcutta High Court has put a complete ban on selling and bursting of Firecrackers during Kali Pujo, Diwali, and other upcoming pujas in West Bengal this year.

This decision was taken keeping the COVID situation and air pollution in mind.

Experts and many doctors have previously stated that the smoke released from firecrackers can be extremely dangerous for people who have recently recovered from COVID-19, as the virus affects the lungs to a great extent.

Thus burning firecrackers might increase the effect of COVID in a person who is already suffering or recently recovered.

The Calcutta High court has requested the public to follow the decision from a humanitarian standpoint.

Apart from this, the High Court has also said that other guidelines that were implemented during the Durga Puja will be followed in Kali Puja as well.

There will be “No entry” for visitors inside the Pandals. Only 10 people (organizers) will be allowed inside a pandal at a time for pandals with area upto 150 meters.

Similarly, 15 and 45 people will be allowed at a time inside pandals with area from 150-300 and above 300 respectively.
