Cases have reduced, unnecessary curbs should not be imposed on marriage ceremonies

Chief Minister Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that restrictions of number should be imposed in marriage related events as per the advice of Crisis Management Group in the districts of the state where Corona infection is more, but in districts where there are less number of cases, unnecessary restrictions on marriage related events should not be imposed.

Notification should be displayed outside the homes of those who are under “home isolation” so that they do not leave the house.

Total five containment areas have been made in the areas including Kolar in Bhopal city, M.P. Nagar and Ashoka Garden. Special care should be taken in these areas.
