Kartik Purnima is approaching on November 30. On this auspicious occasion, devotees from different parts of the country gather in a huge number in Haridwar for taking a dip in the holy water of the Ganges. However, this year, people will not be allowed to do the same owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Keeping the Centre's guidelines in view of COVID-19 in consideration, Haridwar administration has decided to ban the ritual of taking bath in the Ganges.
