According to reports, the state government has not imposed any restrictions for the celebration of Holi, considering that for the past two years the celebrations transpired at home.

These restrictions imposed by the government include the following:

  • Holi is celebrated with pomp and grandeur across Maharashtra, however, this year it should be celebrated while adhering to COVID-19 rules to ensure that crowding does not transpire.
  • Usually, during Holi, colours and water is thrown at each other. But, with the prevalence of COVID-19, the government has urged all to play the festival simply this year.
  • Similarly, on the occasion of Holi, in certain parts of Maharashtra, a procession of palanquins is taken out. This year, the local administration has been instructed to make preparations for the procession at the local temple instead of taking it to every household.
  • Moreover, the local administration should ensure that the rules are strictly followed to avoid congestion.

Since the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, the majority of the festivals have been celebrated in a low-key fashion.
