Puri Dist Adm Eases Restrictions On Cremation At Swargadwar

Bhubaneswar: The restrictions over conduction funeral and final rites at Swargadwar in Puri have been waived off. The district administration announced the decision to allow people from other districts for carrying out the last rites at Swargadwar from Thursday onwards.

However, only 10 people will be allowed for the funeral. This year, on January 8, the Puri district administration had imposed restriction on cremation of bodies by non-Puri residents at Swargadwar. The restrictions came into effect from January 10, owing to rising number of COVID-19 cases in the district.
