- The people engaged in the puja process should be vaccinated.
- Use of masks and sanitizers is mandatory at every puja pandals.

A Total of 171 Puja (both of Chandannagar and Bhadreswar) are to be held this year. Though not like previous year, this year all the puja committee decided to build idols and have the puja offerings. But the cancellation of procession is a heart breaking news for all of us.
