Preparations are underway for Kumbh Mela 2021 in Uttarakhand’s Haridwar. This year Kumbh Mela will be held from April 01 to April 30 in the holy city of Haridwar. Facilities like RO drinking water, hospitals, canteens and help desk will be provided to the devotees. Several temporary and permanent amenities will also be provided to the pilgrims. The Kumbh administration has also put cameras at the Ganga Ghats to monitor the crowd. Pilgrims will need passes for Kumbh and they will be issued only after submission of a negative RT-PCR test report, medical certificate and identification proof. Those without passes will be denied entry. The Uttarakhand government has decided to limit the duration of Kumbh this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic fear. The decision is taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection. The ‘Maha Kumbh’ is celebrated in a cycle of 12 years at four river-bank pilgrimage sites across India. Speaking to ANI, Kumbh Mela Officer, Deepak Rawat said, “Personnel posted on duty to be administered with COVID-19 vaccine. Visitors should have coronavirus negative report, issued not later than 72 hours.”
