Pune, 29th November 2021: Last week Deputy Chief Minister and Pune District Guardian Minister Ajit Pawar had announced that cinema halls and auditoriums can open at full capacity.
However, now Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has made u-turn and issued revised guidelines for the prevention of Coronavirus disease (COVID19) in the backdrop of omicron variant. After the Maharashtra state government order, PMC has ordered that cinema halls and auditoriums can open with 50% capacity.
PMC Commissioner Vikram Kumar has issued these new orders today. These rules will be applicable in the Pune cantonment board (PCB) and Khadki cantonment board (KCB) areas also.
50% attendance at these places
50% capacity of the venue can be allowed for any event in closed places like cinema hall, auditorium, mangal karyalaya.
25% attendance for open space
Any event, meeting to be held in the open space, will be allowed only in the presence of 25% of the space capacity. If the capacity of such a site has not already been determined, the local Disaster Management Authority has been given the power to determine the capacity.
If more than 1000 citizens will be present for the open space event, the local authority will have to be informed. A representative will be sent there as an examiner by the authority. The order states that in case of violation of the rules, the program concerned may be canceled in full or in part.
