Navratri 2021 : The Maharashtra government has prohibited garba, dandiya and other cultural celebrations for Navratri, to be celebrated between October 7 and October 15.

The restrictions have been imposed to ensure that Covid protocols are followed during the festivities. Even though the second wave of Covid-19 has gone, the threat of Covid-19 is still looming large.

It has restricted the height of the idols to four feet for community pandals and two feet for household celebrations. The state government has asked the organisers of community pandals to make arrangements for online darshans and banned more than five people at a time in community pandals.
