JAIPUR – The Rajasthan government has suspended all religious processions including the taking out of the holy Kavad yatra which is being organised in Shravan month in different states of India. The government has alsoe banned gatherings in the wake of religious festivals lined up in this month.

The directions have been given in the wake of COVID third wave warning which is expected to hit the nation by August-end.

Looking at the chances of crowd gathering in the yatra, the state government does not permit the holy procession in the state, says the guideline.

It further adds that all religious tours, including Kavad Yatra and gathering on Eid-ul-Zuha to offer prayers, are not allowed in the state.

No gathering will be permitted for celebrating Chaturmas Festival too, which is basically celebrated by the Jain community, it says further.

The guideline also mentions that all such religious pilgrimages and processions etc, will not be allowed in the state as it can cause overcrowding, increasing chances of spreading COVID infection rate.
