COVID-19 Rerun: Kumbh Mela Curtailed To One Month

Haridwar: In view of the recent surge in COVID-19 cases, the duration of Kumbh Mela here has been curtailed to just one month for the first time in its history this year.

Also, it has been made mandatory for pilgrims to have a “negative” RT-PCR test report to attend the mega congregation.

According to a notification issued on Wednesday, the congregation on the banks of Ganga in Haridwar in Uttarakhand will take place from April 1 to 30, with three “shahi snan” (major bathing) dates on April 12, 14 and 27.
