In view of the ensuing festivals in the month of April, Home Ministry has directed all States and Union Territories to ensure strict compliance of lockdown measures to fight COVID-19 and not allow social, religious gatherings and processions. The Ministry said, it has been communicated to them to take all required precautionary preventive measures for maintenance of law and order, peace and public tranquillity. Appropriate vigil on social media should also be maintained against circulation of any objectionable and fake  content.

Home Ministry has further requested that for the attention of the public authorities, social and religious organisation and citizens, the respective provisions of the guidelines should be widely circulated. It adds that for violation of any lockdown measure, action under the relevant penal provisions of the Disaster Management Act and IPC should be taken by the law enforcing agencies.
