Jharkhand Unlock 5.0 Guidelines PDF
A day after the Central government issued guidelines for Unlock 5, the Jharkhand government on Thursday night allowed places of worship to open outside the containment zones in the state from October 8.
The State government said that Durga Puja will be permitted this year only at homes, temples, and small pandals without public participation. Chief Secretary Sukhdev Singh said the relaxations in opening the places of worship were announced in the wake of the upcoming festive season.
However, no other relaxations were announced in the ‘Unlock-5’ notification, which will remain in force till October 31. The government limited the height of idols at Durga Puja pandals to 4 feet and said that no lighting or extravagant decorations would be allowed, as per the order.
The order from the state government said that the public will not be allowed to visit or participate in the community puja pandals, which should be small in size. Separate guidelines will be issued for performing the rituals.
