Yogi Govt Has Banned All Weddings In Prayagraj

UTTAR PRADESH

You will have to postpone your wedding or shift the venue altogether if you’re planning your big day between January and March 2019 and happen to live in Uttar Pradesh’s Prayagraj.

The Yogi Adityanath government in the state has decided to ban marriage ceremonies during the Kumbh next year and people are not pleased to say the least.

Those who had made advance payments for guest houses, function lawns and caterers are in a fix over the new government diktat. Hundreds are having to change the marriage dates — which are often fixed months in advance — and many are weighing the possibility of changing the venue to a nearby district. People in the wedding business are equally perplexed as they are dependent on the marriage season for their earnings.

As per the order issued, the weddings will not be allowed a day before and after the ‘Kumbh snaan’ which will be held between January and March next year. The order copies have been sent by the district administration to all the wedding hall owners and hoteliers, asking them to cancel all the bookings during the said time.
